Texas-Sized Prices for Dallas-Area Homes in Q4

Just like forecasting the weather, the heating up of home prices is difficult to predict. But depending on where you live, some home values across the nation may be starting to swelter.

For the first time, three Texas-area zip codes entered the U.S.'s top 10 hottest markets (determined by how much more than the asking price homes sold) in the fourth quarter of this year, says a new report from ZipRealty.

The No. 1 hottest neighborhood went to Forth Worth's 76135 zip code, where homes sold for an average of 135 percent of the asking price.
