As a buyer (especially a first-time homebuyer), you are going to have a lot of questions, and I will answer all of them. For example, these are several common questions that buyers usually have:
- What is the selling price based on?
- How flexible is the seller on the asking price?
- Is there anything wrong with this house?
- What is the neighborhood like?

In this section, I will address all the questions you may have so that you know more and stress less. If you have any additional questions not listed here, you can contact me!
