Soon after Ilan and Sarah married, they got earth shattering news that Ilan, a foreign correspondent, would be transferred overseas to Madrid, Spain. Months of passport issues later, they're finally reuniting to begin their married life together, but Madrid's housing market, where only 15 percent are rentals, doesn't promise an easy start. Ilan's focus is being close to his new job, but Sarah wants a comfortable kitchen to cook in and a nice terrace to relax on. In this tight market, real estate agent Pierre-Alban Waters hopes to combine their seemingly simple wish-list on a $1500 a month budget. But nothing's easy, as House Hunters International prepares to compromise in Madrid, Spain.
