Recently the New York Times published an updated version of the Case-Shiller chart from Irrational Exuberance. This time they only went back to 1987 though, but it does illustrate the downturn.

On SeekingAlpha, there's an article from the guys at Bespoke Investment Group with charts projecting prices out to 2011 in a few major cities, using the futures contracts based on Case-Shiller indices.

Personally I think their numbers are "optimistic", with the worst decline being Miami at -28%. Of course, it is the futures traders who are apparently being cautious in their expectations of price drops.
