Top 5 Most Expensive Homes in San Francisco

San Francisco real estate may be some of the most valuable in all of the country. According to an article by 24/7 Wall Street, San Francisco ranks top of the list of cities with the most expensive zip codes, with four. New York is right behind with three, and to no surprise there are five other Bay Area cities on the top 50 list as well.

Most homes in San Francisco that go for top dollar may not be as flashy as those you may see in the Hollywood hills or Orange County coastline, but some of them are just as beautifully designed. You would never tell that some of these properties were originally built more than 100 years ago!
