HOUSTON - ​Houston's housing market got a significant boost last month with single-family home sales spiking 10 percent over a year earlier.

Buyers closed on 7,343 homes with a median price of $225,000, new data from the Houston Association of Realtors (HAR) show. 

The bulk of the transactions were in the $150,000 to $500,000 price range, while the high- and low-end of the market saw declines. 

Even as the Houston economy suffers among an energy industry crunch, home sales are up 3.6 percent so far this year, according to the HAR report, which analyzes sales handled through the Multiple Listing Service in primarily Harris, Fort Bend and Montgomery counties.
