These two are tops with Forbes

The Forbes list of the 500 priciest ZIP codes has just two from here -- Gladwyne and Villanova.

These two are tops with Forbes

Forbes has published its annual list of the nation’s most expensive ZIP Codes.

In the event you aren’t eager to scroll down the list of 500 ZIP Codes to find yours at http://goo.gl/G501 (use the search form, it saves time) I’ve done the work.

The list is choked with ZIPs in Calif., N.Y., northern N.J., Hawaii and Conn. The eight-county area is represented by just two ZIPS — both in Pennsylvania. The closest Jersey comes is Barnegat Light, which is in Ocean County.

No. 99 is Gladwyne (19085) in Lower Merion Township, with a median income of $159,905, and a median price of $1,559,668 that was 14 percent higher than the previous year. Houses, of which there were 12 for sale when the survey was done, spend an average 191 days on the market.

At 149 is Villanova (19085) in Radnor Township, with a median income of $159,538; median house price of $1,286,475, which is 10 percent lower than last year. Houses, of which there were 97 for sale, spend an average of 201 days on the market.
