Newlyweds Kurtis and Kathleen Badger have plans to leave the Big Apple for Big Ben. Kurtis is ready to give up his steady sales job for a chance to study law in England. As a lifelong New York resident, Kathleen is willing to leave her hometown so Kurtis can pursue his dream. She's already gotten a job with an accounting firm in London and feels the city's hustle and bustle will make for an easy transition. The only problem is that his school is far out in the country, and the long hours they both will be putting in is creating friction over which location is a better place to find a home. If they stay in the city for Kathleen, small flats and big prices are waiting for them. If they venture out to the country for Kurtis, they'll get more bang for their buck, but the added cost of the commuter trains into central London could raise their monthly outlay to as much as living in the city center. With only Kathleen's income to pull from, Richard Blanco has a tall order finding a property anywhere that will work for their $1,900 a month budget. Find out if it will be close to school or close to work as House Hunters International comes to a verdict in London, England.
