buying from a builder

From: Steve B

If i bought a new unit /town house directly from a builder, would he sell it cheaper to me than if I bought it through an estate agent.
Would this be wholesale????
I've just purchased my first IP and I paid top price through a seminar company just so that I can learn from the whole process and hopefully do it better the second time around.
I'm trying not to pay retail again.
I would appreciate any comments

If the builder makes a developers margin, and there is little doubt he will, then to my way of thinking it is not wholesale.
If a builder sells directly to you without an agent it is not that common that you would make a great savings.
You see.... most builders / developers know that the market is paying top dollar and so why should they sell at a discount.
