Synopsis

Derek and Nessa arrive in Toronto with great expectations, but are quickly tuned in to the reality of a burgeoning real estate market by Jodi, their agent.

Homes are expensive to not only buy, but also to run. Jodi sets them straight about monthly costs, and the trio set out to explore the market.

A series of houses is narrowed down to three. Derek and Nessa have to start making hard choices about quality of life versus security. Do they really want to buy a house they can barely afford and suffer the consequences?

Nessa desperately wants her dream home, which is over their spending comfort zone, so Derek takes the risk. They make an offer and find out that the house sold for more than $50,000 more than they could come up with. Another wake-up call.

Derek and Nessa need to be realistic, and that will require sacrifices. They agree to put an offer on a fixer-upper with the idea of doing renovations themselves, and living through construction.

They fight through a bidding war and finally become new homeowners.
