In the latest show of House Hunters Internation I watched it was about a Kiwi moving to 4 mile beach in Australia. For those of you that do not know a Kiwi is a person from New Zealand so this wasn't a really big move, probably similiar to a Canadian moving to the US.
In any event the home buyer was a single guy who had being living at home to save up enough money for his move and now could afford a $400,000 budget.
In the end he purchased a very nice beach house which was slightly out of town for the full asking price of $380,000. The place looked very nice at the beach with it's own swimming pool!
