There are around 43000 zip codes in this country (it's a number that's always changing) and Forbes recently published their list of the 500 most expensive zips.
I wrote a commentary in LuxuryHomeDigest about these most pricy zips in the country and thought there might be some interest here at Active Rain. It seems most of the top cendendors are located in California (13) or New York (10) with one each in Gibson Island, Maryland and in Alpine, New Jersey.
Was happy to see our local Rancho Santa Fe, which in prior years had topped the list, in 13th place. And San Diego County, ironically, also had 13 of Forbe's 500 zips--topped of course by Rancho Santa Fe.
