A few weeks ahead of the big game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, you can already find hundreds of listings online from people hoping to cash in on the estimated half-billion dollars worth of economic activity.

A solid share of those listings can be seen at, where the number of rental properties grows by the day.

“Any style and any location – there’s something for any renter out there,” said Bill Ryan, the website’s managing director.

At the high end, a six-bedroom home in North Caldwell is listed at a $119,500 weekly rate.

Some homeowners have even offered liquor, gift certificates and in-house massages, hoping to attract the high-end clientele.
