David and Christina are not only newlyweds, they also teach in the same 4th grade classroom. Now they're embarking on their next project: buying their first home in Los Angeles. The couple wants to live near the private school where they work, in the upscale San Fernando Valley town of Sherman Oaks. They love to bike through the canyons south of legendary Ventura Boulevard, but the real estate prices in that area often start in the millions of dollars, so they'll settle for buying a place that's close to Ventura. But even with that compromise, with a budget of $550,000, can they find a starter home that's big enough, and updated enough, to meet their exacting tastes?
