It’s no secret that Southern California homes are expensive.

Just look at how many local communities made this list of the nation’s costliest places to buy.

Property Shark analyzed 2019 residential sales through Nov. 5 — including condos, co-ops, single-family houses and two-family homes — at the ZIP code level to find the costliest places to be a homeowner in the U.S. The results were dominated by California neighborhoods: The state was home to 91 of the 125 ZIP codes ranked, or 73%.

Atherton 94027’s $7 million median sales price was No. 1. Overall, the Bay Area had 55 neighborhoods on this ultra-pricey list.

My trusty spreadsheet showed me that Southern California was not ignored, with 29 ZIPs on this “if you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it” housing ranking. The region had five of California’s 11 costliest ZIPs.

Here are the 21 Los Angeles County ZIP codes among America’s priciest towns to buy in a home in, listed by their U.S. rankings …
