AP, WASHINGTON Sales of US new homes recovered last month after slumping in the previous two months. Yet Americans are still buying new homes at a slower pace than they did a year ago. The US Department of Commerce said on Friday that sales of new homes rose 6.4 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 433,000. That compares with an upwardly revised annual pace of 407,000 in March, when purchases fell 6.9 percent.
