The year’s most popular zip code to buy big real estate in was 90210, the famed Beverly Hills hub of the rich and glamorous.
Shoppers for 10 million dollar and up megahomes were out in droves, making it a pretty solid year in the country’s top luxury markets.
According to a Coldwell Banker report, between June of 2012 and June of 2013, the most popular zip code to buy big real estate in was 90210, the famed Beverly Hills hub of the rich and glamorous.
The neighborhood edged out a particularly tony niche of New York City’s Upper West Side, but only by one dazzling property.
Aspen, Colorado saw a lot of buying activity, as well, coming in third. That’s quite a feat for a landlocked area as coastal proximity is a typical must-have among megahome buyers.
Experts believe the arts and culture lifestyle offered by the city has helped it attract 8-figure house buyers.
Aspen also currently has the greatest availability of homes in that echelon.
Overall, New York City and the Los Angeles area have the hottest megahome markets, each hosting 4 of the top 10.
Miami Beach, Florida also made the list with its 33139 zip code, which includes Star Island, a neighborhood popular among celebrities.
