Can I just use a lawyer and forgo the buyers agent when I purchase a new home?We are currently looking to purchase a new home. Since no one knows better what I want than me......I have been doing all the legwork online and going to open houses etc. I personally think that if I found the house on my own, couldn't I ask for a lower price on the home since the seller won't be paying the commission for a buyers agent? Let's say they take 2% right off the top, benefiting both of us? Then I would just use a lawyer to close the deal. Is this feasible?
