The Meridian Idaho real estate market had 124 home sales last month compared to 175 last year.  Keeping in mind that Nov' 09 the tax credit was set to expire before but was later extended.

While the majority were existing homes sales last month there were also 19 new home sales.  The Meridian neighborhoods that accounted for the majority of the new home sales were Alpine Pointe (3 sales), Bridgetower (4 sales), and Paramount Subdivision (3 sales).
