After world travelers Natalie and Jeff vacationed in León, Nicaragua with their two sons, the whole family felt a magnetic draw to the Central American country's relaxed culture and beautiful beaches. When they discovered how inexpensive the real estate was they decided to search for a second home there for under 150,000 dollars. Bubbly and energetic, Natalie is looking for a beachfront retreat from their hectic lives in Ohio. But practical Jeff, who works in risk management, is looking for a property with rental potential that will be a good investment. Real estate agent Jordan will have to balance his client's very different needs while hunting for the best deal in León, Nicaragua.
Before their teenaged sons go to college, Tim and Kim want to spend quality time together as a family. So they decided to take the plunge and live a more laidback life in Costa Rica. Tim will be returning stateside to work a few months out of the year, so Kim wants the ease of a turn-key home that she can take care of when it's just her and the boys. But Tim is convinced real savings can be found in a fixer upper. The Jacó property market may be on the up, but in this city of cozy beach and jungle retreats, it's still possible to find great value at affordable prices. Tim and Kim will just have to decide whether to hit the top of their budget with a turnkey or invest an unknown amount in a fixer upper.
