There are a few key concepts that any prospective purchaser should know when seeking real estate by zip code:

  1. ZIP Codes are categories for grouping mailing addresses and are not exact geographic regions.
  2. The centroid of a ZIP Code may be in one County and the associated city/town in another.
  3. In rural areas, a single ZIP Code may be used for cities and towns in several different Counties / Independent Cities.
  4. ZIP Code “areas” can overlap, be subsets of each other, or be artificial constructs with no geographic area.
  5. ZIP Codes are only loosely tied to cities.
