Another show of House Hunters international I watched last night was covering a couple moving from Toronto to Mexico. Except that they were not really moving from Toronto, it seem that they were just staying there for a bit after spending the last 3 years living in a 300 square foot apartment in Japan.
The home buyers were looking for a luxury villa in the 200k range, and amazingly they had several very nice options. All with personal sized pools in their backyard.
In the end they ended up purchasing a home for over their price range for 220k. But it was clearly the best of the lot.
