These are the Most Expensive Places in San Diego to Buy a Home
Some of the most expensive places in San Diego to buy a home also happen to overlap with some of the priciest ZIP codes in the entire country.
Most people know that San Diego ranks as one of the most expensive places to live in the U.S., and a big part of that is the fact that housing in America’s Finest City can be incredibly costly. Now, a new survey indicates that San Diego has some of the most expensive ZIP codes to purchase a home in the U.S.
The data comes from PropertyShark, a real estate research firm that annually releases a list of the top 100 most expensive ZIP codes in the U.S.
It’s worth noting that the findings were based on closed median sale prices, not asking prices.
Despite San Diego’s high cost of living, the metro area actually didn’t clock in first on the list. The most expensive places to buy a home in San Diego rank far below some locales in the San Francisco Bay Area. Silicon Valley, for example, came in on top of the list with a $8.3 million median home sale, a 5 percent increase year-over-year.
Even though seven of the top 10 most expensive ZIP codes in the U.S. were in California, only one originated in San Diego.
Here’s PropertyShark’s listing of the most expensive places in San Diego to buy a home. We also included their ranking in the list of 100 ZIP codes.
- 10. — Rancho Santa Fe (92067): $4,248,000 median sale price in 2023
- 51. — Del Mar (92014): $2,364,000
- 61. — Coronado (92118): $2,205,000
- 86. — Cardiff By The Sea (92007): $1,975,000
- 99. — La Jolla (92037): $1,830,000
Those familiar with San Diego’s property market likely see no surprises in that list. After all, the most expensive asking price for a home in San Diego was seen in Rancho Santa Fe with the listing of a $100 million ranch.
Interestingly enough, however, the Jewel of San Diego — La Jolla — barely made the list at spot number 99.
