you write that if you manually enter an URL like /new-homes/ohio/cincinnati/ into the browser bar you end up with additional query parameters in the URL. It would be interesting to know where these parameters are coming from. Do you get an redirect when the page is first accessed using /new-homes/ohio/cincinnati/? You could check this with Firebug or some similar tool.
