Renting Your Home For Super Bowl XLV: One Homeowner’s Horror Story

Share News:

Damn those NY Jets. The high rollers are not pony-ing up the big bucks for those rentals, and now that the Jets are out, dear Lord — we get the TravelLodge set. This report from one of my house-renter wannabes:

I had a major A list Hollywood director (!!!) lined up to pay full price if NY had won.  His house was featured in Architectural Digest not too long ago  And of course that totally freaked me out, made me want to completely re-decorate.  But then he didn’t take it, and my back up went ahead and booked in FW.   But I turned down a ton of people wanting to lease it for 3 days only.  This Green Bay Pittsburgh deal is a total blue collar bowl.  They are booking the Quality Inns in Oklahoma.   And I decided not to take the 10K offer from one guy who sounded a bit “pimpish” .  So the answer to your question is no.  Frankly, I don’t think I played the game right,  and I held out for what I wanted for my house. (The Princess deserves every penny!) I didn’t want to fool with it for less.  Can you blame me?

    Think about all those rowdy tailgate parties you see on TV and the post-game riots some cities experience before you think about handing the keys to your home to a superbowl attendee. Why shelter a group of rowdy football fanS in your own home during what may become the drunkard moment of their lives?
