↑ In honor of Outdoors Week, today's Comparisons features some nice outdoor spaces, like the wide deck on this Glassell Park three-bedroom, two-bathroom. The house has a washer and dryer, a large kitchen, and A/C and heat. One of those bedrooms is a "mother-in-law" unit that has its own kitchen, laundry, three-quarter bathroom, and even a separate deck, so she (or anyone else who uses the space) isn't going to cramp your style. The rent is $4,195 a month.

Rent is $3,999 a month.
