As Southern California home prices continue to shatter records month after month, it may not come as a huge surprise to local residents that the region dominates a newly released list of the priciest ZIP codes in the U.S.

The rankings, compiled by real estate data company Property Shark, revealed the top 100 ZIP codes for the most expensive median sale prices for 2021.

Of those, 21 are located in Los Angeles County, making it the hottest county for real estate not just in high-priced California, but in all of America, according to Property Shark.

Beverly Hills’ iconic 90210 ZIP code was the county’s most expensive, with a median sale price of $4,125,000 — good for sixth in the rankings. Santa Monica’s 90402 ZIP code also made it to the top 10, coming in at eighth with a median price of $4,058,000.

The city of L.A. itself also featured six of the costliest areas in the U.S., with Pacific Palisades’ 90272 ZIP code leading the pack at a $3,250,000 median sale price.

Orange County, meanwhile, placed fourth in the state with nine of the most expensive ZIP codes; aside from L.A., it fell just behind Santa Clara and San Mateo counties in the San Francisco Bay Area.

In the O.C., the highest ranked areas were located in Huntington Beach (90742) and Newport Beach (92662) — placing them 14th and 15th respectively on the list, with median sale prices of $3,625,000 and $3,577,000.

Overall, California ZIP codes comprised a staggering 70% of the rankings, while claiming six of the top 10 spots on the list. (California had 89 in total, factoring in that the list contains 127 ZIP codes due to ties.)

Topping it all for a fifth consecutive year is Atherton (94027) in San Mateo County, which had a median sale price of $7,475,000, according to Property Shark.

In fact, The Bay Area had the most on the list, with a total of 47. San Diego, meanwhile, had three.
