Six Massachusetts communities landed on a new ranking of the 100 most expensive ZIP codes in the United States, and Boston’s 02199 — the Back Bay neighborhood near the Prudential Tower — came in at No. 3 on the list.
The annual PropertyShark ranking, which aims to determine the “most exclusive residential areas in the country,” includes 117 ZIP codes due to several ties.
As the ranking’s third most expensive ZIP, 02119 posted a $4,772,500 median sales price in 2018, which was “significantly higher” than the last time the area made the list two years ago.
“That was in 2016, when 02199 narrowly missed out on a top 10 ranking, landing on No. 11 with a median sale price of $2.8 million, thanks to a handful of high-priced condo sales,” according to the report.
The following Massachusetts ZIP codes are also on the list:
PropertyShark determined the rankings by taking into consideration “all residential transactions closed in 2018,” according to the report. These included condo, co-ops, and single- and two-family homes. Package deals were excluded.
California (82 ZIP codes), New York (19), and Connecticut (four) are also prominently featured on the list.
