Jenny and Matthew Pragnell and their three sons have lived in a two-story town home in Kingston, Jamaica, for seven years. Now that their three boys aren't so little anymore, it's time for a bigger house. The Pragnells are renters, not owners, so making changes to their home is not allowed. They are eager to jump into the Kingston real estate market, but they have a limited budget and there is little inventory of homes for purchase. It's not uncommon in Kingston for potential buyers to wait a full year for their ideal home to become available. Real estate agent Allison Machado certainly has her work cut out for her.
