Home sales in Cache County are up nicely for May 2011 compared to April, but they are down quite a bit from May of last year.  Last year there were a total of 117 homes sold in May which means sales dropped by 26.5% year over year. May was a great month last year though for one reason, the first time home buyer tax credit ended and many buyers made sure to get their homes before it ended. This had a large affect on home sales last year that we didn't see this year. So, if we compare home sales with May of 2009, there were only 73, which means this May was up about 15.2% from two years ago.
