Out of the 100 most expensive zip codes, an impressive total of 72 are located in CA. This fact is less than attractive to California residents.
Sagaponack’s 11962 (in the Hamptons) and Atherton’s 94027 retain their top positions as the most expensive ZIPs in the country. Despite seeing a considerable drop in median sale prices, California isn’t getting any cheaper!
Here are the top 3:
#1. 11962, Sagaponack
With its sprawling mansions that sell for about $5.5 million this Hampton’s ZIP code is the undisputed leader. When it comes to hefty prices and exclusive living, the Hampton’s is where it’s at. Despite managing to maintain its top spot on the list of most expensive ZIP codes, Sagaponack saw a 35% decrease in median sale prices. This translates into a full $3 million price drop.
#2. 94027, Atherton
Despite being home to less than 8,000 residents, Atherton has some of the most expensive real estate in the country. Nevertheless, its 2016 median price of $5,425,000 is down 8% from 2015.
#3. 10013, New York City
Few areas can compete with the appeal of this ZIP code which includes parts of TriBeCa, SoHo and Hudson Square. It then comes as no surprise that properties in the area sold for 12% more in 2016 compared to the previous year, with the median price now up to $3,808,765 — bumping it up one position and securing a top 3 spot among the most expensive ZIP codes in the country.
