Most Expensive ZIP Codes in the United States

For the third year in a row, Atherton, California is the most expensive ZIP code in the United States to own a home.

Homes in the exclusive Bay Area town sold for a median price of $9 million in 2022, up 0.56% from 2021, according to an analysis by online realtor RealtyHop. The top spot ranking dates back three years, when annual rankings were first tracked.

Close to Stanford University and home to tech executives and venture capitalists, Atherton has resisted the development of multi-family properties, which has allowed homes to remain large and exclusive.

In second place is Sagaponack, New York, an enclave of a few hundred residents in the Hamptons, followed by the upscale Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles. Third place is perhaps the most famous zip code in the United States: 90210 – namesake of the 90s teen melodrama “Beverly Hills, 90210”.
