Leasing in luxury comes at a price in some areas of Atlanta, where average monthly apartment rents have exceeded $2,000.

Whether you’re seeking out the most expensive areas in the state or simply need a list of ZIP codes to avoid during the dreaded apartment hunt, analysts at nationwide apartment search website RentCafe compiled data from real estate research company Yardi Matrix to determine the priciest ZIP codes for apartment renters.

Researchers studied rent prices as of March 2017 in 15 million apartment complexes across 125 U.S. markets and solely focused on apartments with 50 or more rental units.

In addition, only ZIP codes with at least three apartment properties were included in the study.

Renters in the most expensive ZIP code of 30363 (Atlantic Station) spend an average of $2,013 on rent, according to the data.

Compare that with the least expensive ZIP code in Georgia — 31903 (Columbus) — where monthly rent averages $482.
