As if Southern Californians didn't already know it, Forbes has confirmed that they live in some of the priciest places in the country.
Forbes has ranked ZIP codes according to the median price of homes sold in the first quarter. Southern California dominates the top of the list with five of the country's Top 10 most expensive ZIP codes.
The second-most expensive ZIP code in the country, 92067, is in Rancho Santa Fe north of San Diego, where the median price of homes sold was $2.45 million. No. 3 was 92662 in Orange County's Newport Beach, where the median price was $2.4 million.
The other three pricey southland ZIP codes: 93108 in Santa Barbara at $2.05 million came in at No. 7; 90402 in Santa Monica at $2.01 million is No. 8; and 92661 in Newport Beach at just under $2 million landed at No. 9.
If there's any solace in it, No. 1 was not in California but in Sagaponack, N.Y., in the Hamptons of east Long Island, where the median home sold for $2.79 million.
