PropertyShark has released its annual ranking of the 100 priciest zip codes in the United States and it shows homes in the Bay Area are among the most expensive in the nation, with Atherton again the most expensive in the entire nation.  

The Bay Area maintained a comfortable lead as the most expensive metropolitan area in the country, contributing 46 zip codes to the country’s priciestHowever, it has lost some ground in recent years, pulling back from the record 55 zip codes it contributed back in 2019. This year, the Bay Area’s top zips were located in the counties of Santa Clara (14), San Mateo (10), Marin (8), Contra Costa (6), San Francisco (5) and Alameda (3).

Atherton’s 94027 remained the #1 most expensive zip code in the U.S. at  $7.9 million median sale price, after a 6% year-over-year increase. Atherton has a median sale price that’s more than 20 times higher than the national median.

The #3 priciest U.S. zip code for the first time ever, 94957 in Ross, Marin County, which had a $5.5 million median. This was after an increase of 20% or nearly $1 million year-over-year. Ross has been steadily climbing in the rankings since 2016, when it was #11 in the country.
