When Teri McKenna was faced with an empty nest back home in Southern California, she decided it was time to live out one of her lifelong dreams. She moved to St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, bought a Catamaran, and launched a charter boat business. The lifestyle change meant Terri would be working and living aboard the boat. Now, one year later, Terri still loves her boat, but she's starting to miss the conveniences of living on solid ground. She's looking for a condo on the island where she can live, and host her two grown sons when they come to visit. Local real estate agent Karen Korsgren shows Teri and her son Matt three properties close to her budget of $300,000. The first is listed for $315,000, and has two bedrooms and two baths and a great waterfront location. The second property has water views, but only one bedroom and one bath. But it's listed for the lower price of $240,000. The third condo is also just one bedroom and one bath. It's listed for just $205,000, but it does not have a water view at all. Which condo will give Teri the comfortable Island lifestyle she's looking for? Find out, when House Hunters International sails to the U.S. Virgin Islands.
