When Richard Tsao's boss offered him a new job in Chengdu, China, he knew moving there meant taking a big chance. But since he and his wife I-Leen are both first-generation Chinese-Americans, the move is also a way to help their daughter Elise get acquainted with her heritage. But the Tsao's aren't able to sell their house before heading off on the 6,300 mile journey from Seattle, Washington, to Chengdu, China. Limited to a budget of just $300,000, the Tsao's are lucky to have real estate agent Dustin Mills helping them on the hunt. The Tsao's want a home that's conveniently located and that offers a Chinese atmosphere, but doesn't make them feel like outsiders. Dustin pulls out all the stops to show them some good options, but as their old house lingers on the market, coming up with enough cash for China's customary 40% down payment becomes a big issue as House Hunters International goes to Chengdu, China.
