LOS ALTOS IS TOPS ... Los Altos edged out Palo Alto this year as the most expensive city to buy a four-bedroom, two-bathroom home, according to the Coldwell Banker Real Estate 2012 Home Listing Report. In Los Altos the average cost was $1.7 million, while Palo Alto's was $1.5 million, just behind Menlo Park. Five of the most expensive areas in the country are located in the Bay Area: Los Altos, Saratoga, Menlo Park, Palo Alto and Los Gatos.
