The only other caveat I would have Jody is that when you use a buyers broker you are getting into a split commission scenario and the selling broker has less $$ at stake. I have been in situations where the selling broker has thrown something in on the deal because he was getting the full 10% and could afford to in order to make the deal. This won't happen in a split sale.
Had the same thing happen to me. The Broker gave back 5% of his 10% contract to the seller so he could accept my offer. Half the loaf was better than none I guess.
