Surprise! It’s California.

Actually, that should surprise you zero. If you follow real estate news, tech news or just regular ol’ news, you would know that California is not only the Golden State in terms of our gold rush history—but it’s also the Golden State because it nabbed 92 spots on this year’s Forbes 400 list of the richest Americans. Yes, California is still the place to strike gold, apparently…albeit most of today’s fortunes were made in the tech industry, as well as the entertainment industry, real estate development, construction and securities. Billionaires like Larry Ellison and Mark Zuckerberg have mostly concentrated their businesses and homes around either the Los Angeles or San Francisco Bay areas (and sometimes both). They often live in sprawling private compounds in places like Malibu and Atherton—both of which were among the top 10 California ZIP codes for $10 million+ luxury home sales this year, according to the latest Luxury Market Report from Coldwell Banker Previews International®/NRT. Let’s take a look at the top 10 billionaire neighborhoods in California and some of the residences awaiting their next Forbes 400 owner…
