City-by-city price comps
Raleigh, N.C.

Prices in the Research Triangle town haven’t dropped as much as other cities, but the median price is likely to decline this year as more distressed properties come on the market. Sales activity is expected to be flat. Part of the reason is that relocations will slow as people find difficulty selling their homes elsewhere, according to John Burns Real Estate Consulting.
