compare to/with, in comparasion with/to
What's the difference in using "compare to/with, comparision with/to"？
An example from Cambridge Dictionaies is:
If you compare house prices in the two areas it's quite amazing how different they are.
May I say "I compared the house prices between east and west."?
Re: compare to/with, in comparasion with/to
That sentence does not sound very typical of English. I would not use "between" in this case.

Here is how I would write the sentence using "with":
I compared the house prices in the east with the house prices in the west.
I compared the house prices in the east and the west with each other.
The house prices in the east and the west are not comparable. - They are very different.
