    raised still higher/further/more

    The prices are already high, but will be raised still higher/further/more.
    Is that correct?

    No. Try:
    Prices are already high, but they're set to rise (even) further.
    Note that unless you're referring to specific prices, you don't need the definite article in that sentence.

    Re: raised still higher/further/more

    First of all, thanks for your answer. I think your suggestion is very good. However, I need to write a sentence using the word "raise". Could you help me?
    "Prices" has reference to the prices of housing. Would you still write it without the definite article?

    The verb "raise" is transitive, so it doesn't work well in that context.
    Do you just want to write any sentence using that word, or does it have to be about house prices going up?

    Yes, I would. I would use "prices" or "house prices."
