PHOENIX — Super Bowl LVII at State Farm Stadium in Glendale will bring droves of visitors to the Valley in February, setting up a unique opportunity for residents looking to make money by renting their homes or rooms in their homes with services like Airbnb or Vrbo.

The big game is set for Feb. 12, the same day as the final round of the WM Phoenix Open in Scottsdale, and hotels are filling up.

“How big is your house? How big is your room? Where is it? Because those are going to be the big determiners,” Jason Morris, a real estate attorney with Wither Morris PLC, told KTAR 92.3 FM’s Arizona’s Evening News on Friday. “We’re seeing individual rooms anywhere from $100 to $150 to mega mansions you can take from $35,000 to $50,000 for the night. Depends on your appetite.”

Valley resident Hannah DeSanto is using Airbnb to take advantage of the upcoming traffic while she stays with a parent. DeSanto is charging approximately $1,000 per night for her home.

“I have it pretty set and ready for something like this,” DeSanto told Arizona’s Evening News. “It’s been up for about a week and I’ve had one person inquire so far.”

Morris offered tips for interested residents to make the most of their renting experience, including taking an honest appraisal, shooting high-quality photos and advertising on multiple social media platforms.

“Those are all things that are going to lead to big bucks,” Morris said.

Other events set for the week of the game include Super Bowl Music Fest at Footprint Center and the Super Bowl Experience.
