Eliminate the traditional buyers agent and get about 2% of house price as rebate

Recently I came across a few online websites like Redfin,Buysideinc,Ziprealty
It is a very interesting concept where in you as the home buyer does all the legwork in searching for the house, visit open houses, search for listings online and on their website and find a house which you like.
In todays world with internet as it is we all do all this research ourself, so why not make some money out of it.
The reward for doing this homework is a stunning 2% rebate(non-taxable, because it is a rebare :-) ).So think about it that on a house of 700k , you will get about $14000 back.
