If you’ve ever wondered what zip codes are the most expensive in the United States, listen up: The property investment site RealtyHop compiled a list of the priciest American zip codes based on real estate listings in 2020 so far. Only 11 states host the top 100 zip codes, with California leading the pack at 68.

To determine which zip codes across the nation are the priciest this year, RealtyHop took every real estate listing advertised in the U.S. (that's 3.2 million, BTW) and sorted them by zip code and median price. Atherton, California (94027) tops the list–as it has on lists from other companies in previous years–with a median listing price of $8.65 million. Los Angeles itself has 10 of the nation’s top 100 expensive zip codes, which is the most any city has. California contains 68 of the top 100 and is followed by New York with 20–including Sagaponack, Water Mill, and New York City. That leaves 12 zip codes to other states.

Apart from California and New York zip codes, Fisher Island, Florida (33109) is second on the list after Atherton. It’s the only zip code in the top 10 that’s not from those two states. Other zip codes that made the top 100 include Media, WA (98039); Alpine, NJ (7620); Greenwich, CT (06830); Paradise Valley, AZ (85253); Kenilworth, IL (60043); and more.
