It would not make a good investment buying a SF RENTAL property in the city of Glendale. I have dealt in many properties in Glendale and like my colleagues have suggested below, depending on the condition and the exact local, rents fluctuate from $1.45 to $2.10 per sqft. This is not a good enough return for monies invested. For the return on your investment, the ratio of rent to sales price should not be less than 0.9%. If buy and hold is the objective, you need to invest in cities with much lower prices where cash flow is forthcoming.
