Skyrocketing rents. Stratospheric home prices. Housing costs in the Bay Area are among the highest in the country, and there is little relief in sight. As part of our "Priced Out" series on the high cost of living in the Bay Area, we look at what's driving the market, what it means for the region, and what to expect in the short and long term.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Carolyn Said, staff writer covering economics and real estate for the San Francisco Chronicle
  • Jed Kolko, chief economist for Trulia, an online real estate market
  • Kevin Hamilton, owner and CFO of Red Oak Realty, based in the East Bay
