Mike's Journey from Homelessness to Home Ownership

Once a homeless addict who spent his nights in a park, Mike is now a successful architect and condo owner who's eager to buy a single family home with his wife Shawna in Orange County, California. While they have a $450,000 budget, it may not be enough to buy a dream home in the pricey town of Mission Viejo. Will a competitive real estate market force these newlyweds to settle for a condo, or can they find a house that satisfies their wish list: something move-in ready, with space for Shawna's shoes, and the kind of open layout Mike prefers?
