Vail-area real estate sales in May posted the best totals so far this year, but total sales for 2009 so far would have been the third-best month in 2007. There were 79 sales in May, totaling $70.7 million. Both numbers are, by far the best this year. But sales are still lagging well behind last year’s totals, and way, way behind the big numbers racked up in 2006.There have been 278 completed sales through all of 2009. That would have been the third-best sales month in 2007.Most of the sales so far this year — 36 — have been in Vail. There have been 35 total sales in Eagle.
