In this photo taken Tuesday, July 17, 2012, a single family home is for sale in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles. Americans bought more homes in July than in June and prices rose, the latest evidence that the housing market is slowly recovering. Sales of previously occupied homes rose to 4.47 million in July, a 2.3 percent increase from the previous month, the National Association of Realtors said Wednesday. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)
