With a week left until Super Bowl XLVIII people from around the globe are racing to find adequate housing and rooms in the Tri State Area, and are willing to pay top dollar for a room with easy access into Manhattan/NJ. For residents in the five boroughs this is an opportunity to cash in on the unique opportunity and the time is now to strike while the iron is hot. Websites like Craigslist are the best outlets to advertise your property for rent for the week of Super Bowl. Also, with the limited amount of options left you can take advantage of a basic economic idea. Supply and Demand. With low supply and high demand you can charge $3000 for a week in your home/apt/co-op. Apartments in Manhattan are seeing prices as high as $10,000 and higher for the week of Super Bowl which translates to outer Queens, Bronx and Long Island could feasibly fetch $3000 for the week.Â
Now, reading this you may have some strong reservations against allowing a stranger live in your home for a week. I agree, it can be a bit weird to think about, but when you rent an apartment what did you do? You sign a contract! That listed rules and penalties for damages to the property upon move out. To protect yourself against damages I would suggest having a written contract that covers you from any damages and also charging a potential tennant a security deposit that they can get back barring any damages upon their leaving. Secondly, I would suggest that you remove any valuable that you do not feel comfortable leaving in the house while strangers live in the house for the week, and lastly. To cover yourself completely, TAKE PICTURES! We are in the age of the smart phone and camera phone. Utilize the technology at your disposal! Take a picture of everything from every angle. Take pictures of the furniture and the shape they are in. Take pictures of every room from every corner. Take pictures of the kitchen and all the appliances, the walls, the A/C units, the radiators. There is no such thing as taking too many pictures for documentations sake.Â
Now, if you live in an apartment building or in a co-op it would be prudent to take a look at the contract that you signed when you moved in to make sure that you aren't breaking any of the rules that you put you in danger of eviction. Making a few extra grand isn't worth losing your home.Â
This is a great idea to make a few extra nickles off of the excitement of the Super Bowl in NY/NJ, but the most important factor to take into account is be safe and have fun. Happy Super Bowl.
