Decatur, Stone Mountain, and Atlanta’s 30344 ZIP code offer some of the best housing opportunities in the country, according to a new analysis from RealtyTrac.

In its report, RealtyTrac analyzed 3,561 ZIP codes nationwide, focusing on areas with: at least 2,500 residents; an increase in construction loans from last year; an average home flipping return of at least 60 percent; and where Millennials comprised at least 25 percent of the total population.

Under those standards, Decatur was the No. 10 opportunity market in the country, with a flipping ROI of 122 percent, or an average of $55,000. The 30344 ZIP was just behind at No. 11, with an ROI of 121 percent (or $54,664), while Stone Mountain came in at No. 17 with a 98 percent return (or $60,700).
