Newsflash: Buying New Construction Home – Can I Share or Lower My Realtor’s Commission?

We went searching for neighborhoods outside of Nashville, TN and came across a new development. We picked a lot and floor plan. The builder will not drop the price if we do not have an agent, so I basically can give a realtor a “free” 3% commission for doing nothing at all.We will need to list our current home so my question is this: Can I negotiate with my realtor to give me 1% of their commission on the new home, while they keep the full 3% of when I sell my home? Basically, is a realtor allowed to collect 3% and then give it back to the buyer?
