The town of Atherton, California, is nestled in Silicon Valley and is home to, as The Guardian recently put it, "enough Titans of the Tech industry to field a polo team." It also sports the most expensive homes in the U.S., with a median sales price of $7.1 million, according to data from real estate website Property Shark. That's up from last year's $6.7 million home price when the tony suburb also topped the list.

Coming in at No. 2 is Sagaponack, New York, in the Hamptons on Long Island, a summertime playground for the rich in New York City. The median home sale price for this year is a relative bargain at $4.3 million, according to the Property Shark figures. 

Boston's Back Bay is the only neighborhood to make the 10 most expensive ZIP codes that isn't in California or New York, coming in sixth with a $3.7 million median home price for the 02199 area.

Some 91 California ZIP codes made the top 100 list, with San Francisco's Bay Area accounting for 51 of the pricey housing markets, according to Property Shark's data. Because of ties between some ZIP codes, 125 areas made the top 100 list, the researchers said in a blog post.

Towns and neighborhoods in just nine states other than New York and California made the list, including Arizona, Florida, Connecticut, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey and Washington. New Hampshire's Rye Beach, on the New England state's tiny strip of Atlantic Ocean coastline, also made the list for the first time, with a median home sale price of $1.9 million. Another first-timer was the Red Hook/Carroll Gardens section of Brooklyn, New York, with a median home price of $1.45 million.  

Researchers calculated median home prices by crunching data for sales between January 1 and November 5 for condominiums, co-ops, and single- and two-family homes in ZIP codes with at least three residential sales.
