A South African Fights First-Time Buying Fears in Pricey Perth, Australia

After returning home from a vacation in Perth, Anel made a life-changing decision. Enamored with the beauty of Australia's western coast, she secured a job on-line and left her native South Africa for a fresh start down under. And she took another leap, deciding it was time to purchase her first home. When she arrived in Perth, she reconnected with her friend Jean, another South African expat, who agreed to help her house hunt and lodge Anel until she found a place to buy. But once the search started, Anel became increasingly nervous and intimidated by Perth's competitive real estate market. She discovered the area's mining boom meant homes in her $450,000 budget were few and far between. And to make matters worse, she could only afford an older property needing renovations. Find out if Anel makes a purchase in pricey Perth when House Hunters International arrives in Australia.
