Markets In Everything; Sports Vacation Rentals

"GamedayHousing is the easiest and safest way for groups of sports fanatics to find a place to stay when they're in town for the big game. Most [college football] sports towns can't possibly accommodate the hundreds of thousands of fans who flood local hotels that are often outdated and few in number.  Gameday Housing solves this problem by bringing local property owners together with the sports traveler in a marketplace that is safe, secure, and easy to navigate."

Here are some homes available in Ann Arbor, Michigan for the Michigan-Michigan State game this year,  including this 3,000 square foot, bedroom, 3 bath home that sleeps 12
and is available for $3,500 for Friday and Saturday night.  

MP: Note that this housing service is mostly for college football games in markets like Ann Arbor, Michigan and South Bend, Indiana, where there is a shortage of housing on weekends of major football games.

Hundreds of thousands of fans? For what event? And that's not taking into account the fact that in most cases, except for weird things like the Super Bowl, there's a home team involved and a substantial local element of the audience that already lives in the area. Not saying the idea is a bad one, but there's an element of hyperbole in the post.

Check the website, this is mostly for college football games in places like Ann Arbor, Michigan and South Bend, Indiana, where there are probably NOT a lot of local hotels, and housing shortgages for the weekend of football games.

Hyperbole or they may be referenceing a typical college season game day across the country.

Neat concept!
