Katy zip code listed as hottest in the country

KATY, Texas – The Houston area housing market is still booming and shows no signs of slowing down.

According to a study done by a group called Welcomemat Services, a zip code in Katy was the hottest zip code in the United States during the month of May. Nearly 600 families are reported to have either moved into a home or an apartment in Katy during May.

The Houston Association of Realtors says don't expect a slow down any time soon.

"The 99 corridor, the I-10 corridor heading out towards the Energy Corridor really is where we are seeing a lot of growth, new construction. Katy has always been a strong market, it's really our base for our energy corridor in the Houston area," said Chaille Ralph, chair of the HAR board.

Second to Katy was a zip code in Charlotte and third was one in Chicago.
