Lower Merion (3 beds, 1.5 baths)—Right on the border of the city sits this house, which reaches nearly 2,000 square feet large, and which you can rent for $2,700 a month. It has two floors, a sizable kitchen and—added bonus—a large, covered wood deck.

Powelton Village (3 bed, 3 bath)—Just steps from Drexel University sits this apartment, which boasts hardwood floors and plenty of natural light. It’s a recent construction, so everything—appliances included—is brand new.

Queen Village (3 bed, 3.5 bath)—There’s a lot to gawk at in this Queen Village home. It’s got multiple floors, some really ample kitchen space—with an island!—and a balcony off the bedroom upstairs. Plus, the unique bathtub isn’t something you’re likely to find in every apartment.
