The 25 Most Expensive Suburbs In America

georgetown texas

The average American household spent $37,782 last year on costs not including the mortgage. But 38k won’t get you a parking spot in America’s richest suburbs.

Consumer research site Bundle.com just released spending data for small areas. Since suburbs can have very little diversity (no poor people to bring down the average) these numbers are more ridiculous than the most expensive cities.

First off, Americans spent $37,782 per household in 2009 (excluding the family mortgage)
