Realtor role on new home build
We have a realtor that we know and trust, but not sure how critical they are in the (1) lot purchase and (2) new home build process. I don't want to sound stingy, but it seems like we may want to avoid commissions on the buying side of these transactions and give ourselves a little more negotiating leverage (especially with the lot purchase).
We'll use our realtor on the sell side, which obviously makes sense.
Is my thinking flawed here?
