Gas prices are thru the roof, groceries are more expensive than they have been in years, and the cost of everything is going up. Rent was already expensive here in West Texas-especially in Midland and Odessa. And the real estate market is on the upswing with oil back and in high demand. Even with all that being said-this zip code in Texas is STILL the most expensive one to live in.

Cheapism took the time to comb through every zip code in the United States and come up with the most expensive places to live in each state. In Texas, it's zip code 75205-- University Park. Hands Down you'd better win the lottery or have a rich relative with a will close to kicking the bucket if you plan to relocate there. Average home value: $1,324,650. If you've got a few million lying around, you could be the proud owner of one of these top 5 homes currently available in Texas' most expensive zip code:

The bonus is you're right outside Dallas with all the big city conveniences, and sporting events including the Cowboys and Rangers and Stars--but you're far enough out that the hustle and bustle and city noise don't affect you.
