WASHINGTON — Sales of new U.S. homes cooled off in December compared with November but for the entire year were the best since 2009.

The Commerce Department said Friday that new-home sales fell 7.3 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 369,000. That’s down from November’s rate of 398,000, which was the fastest in 2 1/2 years.

For the year, sales rose nearly 20 percent to 367,000. That’s the most since 2009. Sales are still below the 700,000 level that economists consider healthy.
