The listing agent will charge 6% ( maybe more, maybe less) and there will be other closing costs for the seller. If the seller is willing to take only 10% down, he is getting almost nothing at close. There is not too many ways around the 10% down when listed with an agent. This is why dealing with the owner direct is more gooder.
