Houses Up For Grabs During Super Bowl Week

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – In just 30 days, the big game – Super Bowl XLV – kicks off in Arlington. Of the thousands converging on North Texas for the game, many will need a place to stay and hundreds of local homeowners are offering up their digs at Super Bowl prices.

Dori Neil’s family hasn’t lived in their Preston Hollow area home for years.

According to Neil, the house has an acre of space in the backyard, two separate bathrooms in the master bedroom, and enough space for 10 people. “It has a creek stone fireplace [and] marvelous hardwood floors,” she said.

The situation is different for Eugene Mayo, who is willing and ready to move out of his 3,000 sq. ft. North Dallas house within weeks.

Neil and Mayo are just two North Texans trying to score in the biggest game on the planet: super bucks during the Super Bowl. Both plan to rent their properties, for thousands of dollars a night, to cash-carrying football fans.

“It could be used for a big group of friends, or maybe two families and stick the kids in one room,” Neil said of her house. “There’s no limit to who could stay here.”

Mayo had high praises for his home as well. “And one of the main factors, they can cook, they have maid service, all that’s readily available,” he said.

Home rental web pages, and websites like Craigslist, are packed with rental listings specifically for the Super Bowl.

Along with the demand for rental property comes a certain amount of risk and a warning from the Better Business Bureau.

“We know there have been complaints in years past on some home rental companies, for not listing properly, not listing accurately [and] people not getting the rental they expected to get,” explained Jeannette Kopko, with the Better Business Bureau.

Renting Dori Neil’s house will run you $6,000 a night, or $25,000 for the week. Eugene Mayo wants $7,500 for five days.

But if you really want to shine, you can rent this house in Turtle Creek for $150,000 for the week.  They’ll throw in a butler, car service and lots of extra bells and whistles.

They all believe the price is right, because it’s the biggest game in town.
