Houston housing market on fire

August marked the 27th month in a row that Houston home sales have increased on a monthly basis. The number of home sales registered in the Houston Association of Realtors multiple listing service topped 7,000 for the fourth month in a row in August in the large Texas city, defying the typical fall slowdown in the housing market and matching a flurry of activity not seen since 2007.
