The Real Deal Miami

South Florida homeowners are looking to make some extra cash by renting out their homes to football fans soon descending on the area for the Super Bowl. For Pompano Beach resident Thomas Cordaro, this year’s game, scheduled for Feb. 7 at nearby LandShark Stadium in Miami Gardens, is an opportunity to “subsidize a few mortgage payments,” he said. For his home, which has a full kitchen, two living rooms, a pool, and room for eight people to sleep, he is asking $15,000 for the week, or $250 per day, per person. He says he has already gotten several calls, though he is expecting more serious offers once contending teams are chosen. [WPLG 10]
