Okay, we admit. Selling your house is a dicey prospect these days, maybe even no prospect at all. Plus, all talk of this little problem borders on the mundane, doesn't it? But we’re still talking about it almost like “how ya doin’? How’s the weather? Sold your house yet?”

To make yourself feel better, check out how the rich folks and celebrities are coping with the problem of house sales.
