The Dallas area is ranked as the top housing market in the country in a new report by mortgage giant Freddie Mac. Dallas, Nashville and Honolulu are at the head of a list of cities that have seen the most housing market improvement, according to a just-released market report by the Washington, D.C.-based mortgage firm. North Texas median home sales prices are at an all-time high — up more than 40 percent in the last four years. In November, preowned home sales in the area were up 26 percent from a year earlier. It was the biggest year-over-year home sales gain for North Texas in almost four years.
