Season 79, Episode 3

Saving a Nest Egg in Rural Malaysia

Lauren and Vaughan love their hometown of Cape Town, South Africa, but can't afford to have a home and family there on freelance income. So they started looking for opportunities in Asia, where the cost of living is lower, and the currency in stronger. When Lauren got the offer to train English teachers in rural Malaysia, the McShanes hopped on a plane to save a nest egg to ultimately afford the life they want back home. But finding a home in Mersing isn't easy, with no real estate agents or property listings. Luckily, Real Estate Agent Timothy Low travels over 200 miles from Malaysia's capital of Kuala Lumpur to do the legwork and give them various options up to their western standards. Find out what's available along with Lauren and Vaughan, when House Hunters International visits Mersing, Malaysia.
