Hot property in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

As a kid, Tom Reddaway learned as many languages as he could, hoping one day they would help him break out of London. The plan worked. While traveling through Brazil, he happened up on Rio de Janiero, a pretty lady named Rafaela, and an up and coming neighborhood called Santa Teresa. The turn of the century colonial architecture captured his imagination and he vowed to make a home here. But buying in Brazil isn't easy. It's rapidly developing ecnonomy often shuts out foreign money with high exchange rates and taxes. Tom saved up $400,000 in cash, and hoping it would be enough, set out with real estate agent Pedro Villela to find his perfect fixer-upper. But there's one thing he didn't count on - girlfriend Rafaela isn't totally on board with living in a run down diamond in the rough. Will Tom find a home both he and Rafaela can be happy in? Or will Brazil's exchange rate prove too costly? Find out when House Hunters International dances into the exciting city of Rio de Janeiro.
