This busy family of 6 loves their Tucson, Arizona lifestyle, but they yearn for a relaxing Fiji island getaway. Top of their list is a place with plenty of room for themselves and their guests, a large eat-in kitchen, ocean views and a big pool with plenty of outdoor living space. They'd like to stay under their $500,000 budget. The first place their agent Will takes them to see is a 1700 square foot house that's listed for $275,000. It only has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and no pool, but it's on almost an acre of land so there is room to expand. The home has breath-taking ocean views, but the kitchen is older and the fridge is tiny. The next house they look at is priced higher, at $325,000, but it's also larger, with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in 2500 square feet. The best feature of the house is the enormous great room that opens out onto the large deck. Jon loves the pool and outdoor living space but because it's on only ? an acre, Michelle is worried that they wouldn't be able to expand the house in the future. The last house they look at is listed for $450,000 and is made up of 3000 square feet divided among 4 villas. The main villa has a large open kitchen/living/dining space, with a long patio that has a water view. The other three villas are identical, and come with two queen-sized beds, a giant spa tub, and an open shower each. The large pool area comes with a swim-up bar, a separate kiddie pool, a massage table, over-sized patio furniture and a grill. Jon is concerned about the upkeep such a large property would need. After weighing the pros and cons of all 3 properties, Jon and Michelle have reached their decision.
