House hunters international and it was covering a single woman moving from America to Rome.
The home hunter taking a new job in downtown Rome, (which appeared to be teaching english) and she had a small rental subsidy from her employer. So this ended up being a rental search and not buying a home.
The problem was that the rental rates are out of this world. She had a budget of $5,000 a month but the homes we saw where $6,500 , $6,500 and $7,500!
The location looked exciting but she was not getting a palace for that price. In the end her REALTOR® was able to get the price of the property down towards the affordable $5,000 level and she got a great place to live.
