In a buyer's market, homeowners are going to extreme lengths to sell their houses: offering free plasma TVs, Jacuzzis, even a car to fill half of the two-car garage. Housing experts talk about the challenges that homeowners face when they are trying to sell.

Guests:

Patty Rooney, Human Resources Supervisor, School of Education, University of North Carolina

Elizabeth Razzi, author of The Fearless Home Seller; real estate columnist for The Washington Post

Kendra Todd, host of Home and Garden Network's My House Is Worth What?
