Life Balance in Perth

She wished for more time to spend with her 4 young sons and when a friend recommended Perth as a place where she could find a better work life balance, Yvonne and her boys made the long journey in search of family bonding. Yvonne’s sons have only one item on their wishlist–their own swimming pool–but Yvonne has never had one before and is a little nervous about the costs of maintaining a pool on only one income. She’d love to have at least 2 bathrooms to make sure she doesn’t have to share with her sons, but making sure they get the only item on their wishlist might mean Yvonne has to sacrifice any and all privacy she’s got. Find out if she can find everything they’re looking for as House Hunters International visits Perth, Australia.

An American Couple Falls in Love with Florence, Italy

Chase fell in love with Florence when he was a college student studying abroad and has always hoped to start a life there with his wife Jen. She’s up for the adventure, especially since he proposed to her at the top of Piazzale Michelangelo. Their eventual plan becomes an immediate one when Jen finds out that her severe allergies are a reaction to the high volume of Pecan trees in Florida. With an accelerated timeline, the couple sells most of their belongings and starts their Italian love story. They hope to run their business from their home in Florence, so they need an extra bedroom for office space. They always pictured their home to be in the heart of Florence so that the culture of the city is within walking distance. However, they find out that apartments in this prime location offer little green space for their two dogs. Find out if they can find a home to suit all their needs. Ciao Italia!

Writer’s Block in Islington, England

Self published children’s author AJ Anglsey was just starting to get her name out in Irvine, California when a job opportunity for her husband Justin came up in England. They’ve decided to leave the suburbs and look for a city apartment in the family friendly London borough of Islington. As a stay at home mom, AJ wants a spacious place where she can write and comfortably raise their 2-year-old daughter Abigail. Until AJ can build a bigger audience, Justin’s salary is their steadiest income stream so finding a place that will ease his money worries and meet her sizable space standards will be a tall order for real estate agent Richard Blanco.
