Some of the things I hear most often from Buyers when we first start working together are:
Competition is high for the properties I like
I'm confused about the process
How much money do I need to put down?
List prices mean nothing
Is the market up or down?
Do I need a realtor?
Yard to house
Dining 2 living & stairs
Cafe in Autumn

As in most things, preparation is key. When I work with buyers I stress that we're not just shopping; we're a team and everyone has a role to play.
Learn to recognize value - in all it's forms
Be ready to pounce - fortune favours the bold!
Know your competition
Know your options
