of the 100 most expensive zip codes to live in 91 are in California!

Here is another way to determine how expensive it is to live in California.  Out of the first 100 most expensive zip codes in the nation, 91 are in California—91% of the most expensive zip codes are in the former Golden State.

  • At $7 million, Atherton’s 94027 is the #1 most expensive zip code for the third year in a row.
  • San Francisco boasts 13 of the nation’s priciest zip codes, the highest number in any city.
  • California remains unchallenged in its leading position, featuring 91 zips in our top 100.
  • Los Angeles County is the most expensive among counties, contributing 21 of the priciest zips in the U.S.
  • The Bay Area is still the most exclusive metro, originating 55 of the country’s top zip codes.”

We also have the highest gas and income taxes, the worst schools, the worst freeways in the nation.  California is collapsing yet the Democrats want tens of billions more in taxes.  Since January, Newsom signed into law $4.6 BILLION in new taxes and fees.  That does not include the cost of new regulations.

Why is California expensive?  Voters elect folks to office that add taxes, regulations and kill jobs.  We vote for folks that protect criminals from foreign nations and then give law breakers attorneys and financial support from money meant for education.  Until government opens up be prepared to pay more for housing or renting a U-Haul going to Texas.
