Grab a newspaper, open it up to the real estate section... and more often not, you're in for a case of extreme sticker shock. In many parts of the country, housing prices haven't just hit the roof, they've gone through it. What are you doing about it? Are you buying, selling, or adding on? And is there an end in sight? Neal Conan examines the high price of housing, in this hour's Talk of the Nation from NPR News.
