Does value of a car drop if there's been more than 3 owners before? Is it a Cue that there may be problems with car due to the number of owners. I carfaxed it and it has no accident and seems clean.

Not really. More important is service records, to show that the car has been well maintained. Or not. I am the third owner of my 2006 Corolla and (It's not for sale) if anybody bought it they would be getting a car that has been very very well maintained with oil changes, etc. Especially by me, and I can prove it. The car has been-- and will-- be reliable, dependable and have no problems

Not really a 2005 is 10 model years old. So 3 owners in that time period is not a big deal. If its got a clean Carfax then you are good to go. The Maxima is a very good car. Just look at the floor pans, from outside the car, under the front seats. They tend to get rusty very bad there.
