This is really quite simple without all those missleading words. Every single New Development Condo that I have looked at offer compensation to a broker, because most sales are done through a broker. Majority of these buildings are marketed by Real Estate firms, or they may have their own sales office and do their own marketing for the building. Sponsors usually offer anywhere from 3 to 4% on average, but I've also seen higher commissions. Don't go on your own, do go with a broker, considering it will be at no extra charge to you. Keep in mind that the sponsor may not budge on the price if the building is brand new, it will decrease the value of all other units, what you can do is try to negotiate closing fees, because they can be expensive after all you have to cover.
Anything else, shoot me an email and I'll tell you how it is without sugar coating.
In short, once you select your buyer's agent part of there role is to spend time with you discussing your real estate goals. Compensation is part of the discussion. A Buyers Agent can be compensated by you the buyer or paid through the transaction. If you are working with a seasoned Buyers agent they will provide you with a full proposal and explain how they will be compensated in a sponsor situation.
