Georgia: This is the Richest Zip Code in the State
Each U.S. state has a wealthiest zip code. But, of course, that number varies a lot per state, since every state has a different cost of living. For example, one state’s wealthiest zip code might seem like peanuts compared to another state’s numbers. But, it’s all relative. So, have you ever wondered what’s the richest zip code in Georgia? Let’s get into the latest data, as it changes constantly.
First, let’s look at the most expensive place to live in the entire U.S. Do you have any guesses? It’s in California, which is not a big surprise. Everyone loves sunny California. The Bel Air neighborhood in Los Angeles is the most expensive place to live in the entire country, according to the latest numbers from the United States Census Bureau. That totally makes me think of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” Homes in Bel Air have a median price of $8,625,000, according to a Realtor.com study on the most expensive ZIP codes in the U.S. As for methodology, Realtor.com used data on the “highest median home list price in October” of 2023, “excluding areas with fewer than 25 listings.” They also note that, “Many are upscale vacation destinations popular with the uber-wealthy.”
As for where you can get a deal, according to the U.S. Census Bureau numbers, rural states have homes with the most affordable ZIP codes, in general. Also, the current U.S. median home price of $431,000, according to the latest U.S. Census data. That still seems high to me, but you’re factoring in states such as the aforementioned California, so there’s that.
So, what’s the richest zip code in Georgia? According to Realtor.com, it’s actually in Atlanta with the zip code 30327. There, the median list price for a home is a whopping $2,371,250 and the median square footage is 5,567. Find the full list for all the states here.
