Average list price: $1.8 million
This home sells for: $1.849 million

Description: Newport Beach was the most expensive city on Coldwell Banker's list, based on the average home price for a 4-bedroom/2-bath house in a good neighborhood.

Newport Beach definitely qualifies as a good neighborhood, with its miles of beautiful beaches. This very pretty, modern house is just a few miles from ocean, plus it features a quarter-acre lot with patio, fire pit, lush lawn and great views.

Newport Beach is geared to residents into an active lifestyle. In addition to the beaches, it's a quick getaway to both the desert and mountains. The community association provides a swimming pool, spa and tennis courts.
