Rents in San Francisco, Marin and the Peninsula are the least affordable in the country, according to a new study by the National Low Income Housing Coalition. Continuing home foreclosures have pushed rental rates up nationwide, even as home prices in some areas continue to decline. We discuss this trend, and what it may mean for both homeowners and renters.

Guests:

Peggy Lee, acting executive director of the Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California

Joshua Howard, executive director of the California Apartment Association, a trade group representing rental owners
