In the San Francisco Bay Area, where high housing costs are notorious, residents looking to make a quick buck are offering to rent their homes at super-sized prices to the 1 million visitors expected for Super Bowl 50 festivities.

There’s a luxury 8,500-square-foot home in San Jose, California, listed for $10,000 a night. A four-bedroom apartment near San Francisco’s “Super Bowl City” is listed at $1,495 a night, with a minimum six night stay.

And let’s not forget a treehouse for two in a 150-year-old oak tree a half hour drive from downtown San Francisco. It’s listed at $495 a night.

Whether customers will pay such prices is uncertain, even in an area where hotel rooms are limited for the week-long extravaganza with festivities in San Francisco culminating Feb. 7, when the Denver Broncos square off against the Carolina Panthers.
