JAW DROPPING…the Most EXPENSIVE ZIP CODE in Utah
It's hard to believe that there are more expensive places to try to buy a house than in St. George, Utah. But according to a recent study it doesn't make the top ten most expensive zip codes in the state for trying to buy a home.
According to Deseret News (full article here)
"The priciest single-family homes sold in the second quarter of 2023 were located in Alpine, a Utah County suburb known for its big houses nestled in the foothills just north of American Fork Canyon.
In Alpine’s 84004 ZIP code, the median single-family home price dropped to $1,165,000 in the second quarter of 2023, a 13.7% decline from the area’s median price of $1,350,000 a year ago, according to the Salt Lake Board of Realtors’ data." (McKellar, Deseret News)
After Alpine, the list continues with zip codes in Huntsville, Eden, Salt Lake City's Avenues neighborhood, Sandy, Draper, and Little Cottonwood Canyon.
