In the places America’s movie stars and wealthy financiers call home, it goes without saying that the homes aren’t exactly cheap. And with COVID-19 pushing prices higher, even the cheapest home in the top 25 most expensive ZIP codes comes with a seven-figure price tag.

With just one exception, all 25 of the priciest ZIP codes are found in states along the coasts — mainly in California and New York. The only city in the middle of the country to claim a spot on the list is Aspen, Colorado, a ski resort town a few hours’ drive from Denver.

California has the most ZIP codes in the top 25, claiming 12 ZIP codes. New York state is No. 2 with nine ZIP codes. Colorado, Massachusetts and Florida have the remaining four ZIP codes; Florida is the only other state with two ZIP codes.

However, the price tags on these homes may be exactly what you expect. For example, the second-cheapest home on the list is in Beverly Hills, 90210, the ZIP code in which the TV show by the same name is based. There, the cheapest home in December 2021 was priced at a cool $1.5 million — much lower than the priciest of the pricey.

GOBankingRates used Zillow data from December 2021 to find the cheapest (or, indeed, least expensive) homes in each ZIP code. This gallery will walk through what Zillow can tell us about each of those places.
