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.
