City-by-city price comps
Billings, Mont.
Billings has fared better than most parts of the United States and has avoided much of the investor boom that hit other parts of Montana and the West. Still, a slight drop in home prices is expected this year. That and more are needed to bridge the 24-percent difference between actual home prices and equilibrium, according to Local Market Monitor. The pace of construction is less than in 2007, with a 14-percent decline in single-family permits from December 2007 to December 2008.
