While the cost of living is ever-increasing across the United States, in some metro areas, the average cost for a home is exorbitant.
Delaware corporation 24/7 Wall St., LLC compiled a list in December of the 50 most expensive ZIP codes across the U.S. after reviewing data on the median sales price of single-family homes through the first three quarters of 2019. The rankings included only ZIP codes "with at least 1,000 single family homes and condos and where at least 100 of those single family homes and condos were sold in that time frame," according to the site.
The list also included data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey on median household income based on five-year estimates at the ZIP code level between 2013 and 2017. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the vast majority of ZIP codes to make it on 24/7 Wall St.'s top 50 most expensive list are located in California.
