Forbes has released its annual list of America’s most expensive zip codes.
94027 — Atherton, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley — is the priciest place in the nation. The median cost of 24 homes listed for sale last summer was a cool $9.03 million.
New York is the state with the most expensive zip codes: 6 of the top 10. 11962 — Sagaponack, in Southampton — is #2, followed by 3 in Manhattan.
Connecticut does not even crack the top 50. Three Greenwich zip codes appear at #52, 56 and 69. 06880 is our state’s 7th most expensive zip code, and we’re only #111 in the nation. Our median home price is $1,897,892.
Weston’s 06883 is #330 ($1,111,516).
I can only imagine what the teardowns and new construction look like in 94027.
And how poorly the drivers of all those expensive cars park.
