In Santa Monica, the neighborhood north of Montana Avenue has been named the 7th most expensive in the United States. The median sale price for a home in the area is $4.378 million according to a report released by the website Property Shark. North of Montana was ranked 9th in the report last year and has risen to 7th because median home prices increased by $350,000 per home since 2021.
Additionally, other areas on the Westside that made this exclusive list are Beverly Hills which is named the 5th most expensive zip code in the nation on the same list with a median home sale price of $5.122 million. Malibu was listed as the 23rd most expensive zip code with a $3,500,000 median per home average. The city of Venice is ranked at number 63 with a median home price of $2.2 million.
The report states that “California remained the unchallenged leader of the most expensive zip codes to buy a home in the U.S., providing 90 zips to our ranking or the equivalent of 70% of the country’s leading zips.” and notes that California has four of the priciest counties in the United State, the country’s most expensive metro, four out of the five priciest cities; and seven of the most exclusive neighborhoods are all in California.
