Matt and Laura Are Tired of Living 400 Miles Apart and Are Searching Baton Rouge, LA for Their First Home

Laura and Matt are leaving sweet home Alabama for Baton Rouge, LA. After being accepted into a Ph.D program at LSU, Laura and husband Matt are moving to Cajun Country. But there's a hitch. In his mad dash to quickly find a job in Baton Rouge, Matt ended up getting a new gig before Laura had finished her school year in Alabama. So now he's living out of a hotel in Baton Rouge and Laura is driving over 400 miles each weekend to see him. With only a few weekends free to search, they're frantically looking for a home in a city they don't know. Matt's Aunt Pattie, a self-proclaimed house-hunting junkie who lives just an hour away, will tag along to lend support. With a long list of wants, but not much time, can these Alabamans find a new home in Baton Rouge?
