Yes buyers can represent themselves, but since the listing agent has negotiated a commission to be split with a selling agent's broker, this does not necessarily mean that you would get the agent's commission as a rebate.
I do think that we are nearing the time when, just like listing agents, buyer's agents will be negotiating commissions with their clients.
But be aware that looking for a home is only part of your agent's job. The key qualities of a good agent are the ability to negotiate and to be the client's advocate, plus keeping to deadlines, and the paperwork while in escrow. Real Estate can be a giant time drain.
But, you are right, for some savvy buyers, all they need to do is consult with a real estate attorney.
Good Luck... more
Seller and buyer agents commisions are usually 2.5 to 3%. If their is a bonus to an agent or buyer their isn't a reason you wouldn't get it back if you negotiated this before hand. What cash are you trying to get back?
When you are working with an agent they will ususally assist you in finding the property, prepare you a CMA, negotiate the best price possible, make sure that all usual services are negotiated, get you the best price, coordinate escrow, inspections and make sure your documents are reviewed prior to the closing. After the sale the agent can assist you in referrals to movers or contractors. You will hopefully have a home warranty to cover minor issues that come up after the sale. Your title insurance policy may also protect you if any issues come up after the close.

Your agent can help you with your problem. The agent is not responsible for the condition of the home, but if you used a home inspector, or if the Seller's Property Disclosure did not address your issue, you may look there. Your agent is on your side and should try to help you get answers to your questions.... more
