For the first time in more than a year, monthly residential home sales rose in Central Kentucky. The 11.1 percent July increase also was notable because the effects of the federal homebuyer tax credit, which primarily ended in June 2010, were not a factor. "We do have good comparisons now year over year, which we did not have before this month," said Barb Curtis, president of the Lexington-Bluegrass Association of Realtors.
