These days, everything is negotiable, but I think the better point is this: An experienced agent will save you more money in the long run by negotiating a better purchase price. What we get paid by the seller has already been accounted for when the house goes to market. A cost of doing business , if you will. Asking your agent to give up a portion of his/her commission is rude imho. How would you feel if you showed up for work one day to be told that you were going to get half pay for the same amount of work you got full pay for last week? Do you tip a waitress 15-20% for her service? If you let the agent do his job, and you do say that he is hardworking, and get paid what he is owed, he will keep you at the top of his client list so that you are the one he calls when a hot investment property hits the open market, or even before it does. Business is a two way street.
