San Clemente's inland ZIP code is among the top 500 areas in Forbes' annual rankings of the most expensive ZIP codes in the country.

San Clemente's inland 92673 ZIP code is listed among the 500 most expensive locations in the U.S. included in Forbes' annual list of America's most expensive ZIP codes, released in October.

With a median home price of $677,710, San Clemente's ZIP code that includes Talega ranks 482 on the list of 500.

San Clemente proper with a 92672 zip code didn't make the list, however.

Most expensive in Orange County, however, are ZIP codes in Newport Beach, Corona del Mar and Newport Coast.

Newport Coast ranked highest on the list at No. 25, followed by Newport Beach's 92662 at No. 49, Corona del Mar at No. 52 and Newport Beach's 92661 at No. 65.

Forbes, with the assistance of Altos Research, examined prices in more than 22,000 ZIP codes from June 28 through Sept. 28 and looked at the median asking price for single-family homes and condominiums. The analysis was limited to ZIPs where 10 or more residences were on the market.
