City-by-city price comps
Albuquerque, N.M.

Job losses are bringing clouds to Albuquerque, and the rise in unemployment is affecting residential building permit levels, which have reached the lows of the early 1990s. Chris Porter with John Burns Real Estate Consulting says the market didn’t experience the same increase in prices as some of the larger Southwest markets, so the price correction has been less severe. Still, resale prices are expected to fall as unemployment grows.
