EMERYVILLE, Calif., Aug. 6, 2014 - ZipRealty, Inc. (http://www.ziprealty.com) (ZIPR), a leading online residential real estate brokerage and provider of technology and marketing solutions, has released a new study on the most expensive zip codes in Los Angeles County. Zip codes in Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades and San Marino are the most expensive as the first half of 2014 came to a close.

"Los Angeles home prices remain healthy relative to the rest of the country," said ZipRealty CEO Lanny Baker. "Sellers are achieving full asking prices for the homes they put on the market, according to our report. As of June 30, the sold-to-list-price ratio in the Los Angeles metro area was 100%, compared to 98.9% for the 23 metros we survey."
Here`s a list of the most expensive zip codes in Los Angeles as of June 30:
|Zip Code||Neighborhood||Median Sales Price June 2013||Median Sales Price June 2014||Year-Over-Year Price Growth|

"Although real estate conditions in these markets are stellar, many sellers in the region are contending with higher inventory numbers and an increase in the amount of time properties are trading," Mr. Baker said.
