if you already know the property you want, is it necessary to get a (buying) agent?or can you buy straight from the listing agent? do you need a buying agent to represent you, so there are always two agents? or is this unnecessary? my concern is because agents take a large cut of the price of the home, and if you don't need to search for a home (already know the one you want) this seems like a waste (no?) ... if you do get an agent (for bargaining purposes?) is there a proper way to describe your situation of already knowing the home you want and not needing to search but only needing to negotiate a deal on the home? is this feasible to do yourself? or if it is not, (feasible to do yourself)... is there a proper or better way to explain your situation to the agent, so that they don't overcharge you? would you be charged the same percentage (3,6,7, or whatever) if they did not help you find the home, and if they did, is the percentage all the same? ..and is there a proper or better way to explain your situation to the agent, so that they don't overcharge you?
