(AP) -- Sales dipped in October from the previous month, but remain well above year-ago levels. Low mortgage rates have helped drive sales higher by giving would-be buyers more pricing power. Economists forecast that new home sales rose to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 737,000 units last month.
New home sales, seasonally adjusted annual rate, by month:
