Finicky First-Time Buyers in Durham, North Carolina

Newlyweds Melissa and Evan moved into his cramped grad student apartment when they got married. But now he's pursuing his doctorate, which could mean four more years of sharing tight quarters. So they've decided to take the leap and buy their first home in Durham, North Carolina. They know exactly what kind of house they want and which neighborhood they want, but they may not be able to afford it all with their grad student budget. Are the realities of real estate compromise a lesson they're willing to learn?
