Dallas Homes Not Scoring on Super Bowl Rentals

I'm not going to lie and tell you the Dallas-Arlington-Fort Worth area is not head-over-heels thrilled to be hosting the Super Bowl on February 6. But some homeowners out here may be disappointed by what they net out of renting their Dallas homes to out-of-town visitors.

Months ago, one of Dallas's hottest party planners, who also happens to own one of the city's hottest restaurants, told me he was leasing his Dallas home, a luxury car, and a package of delicious meals for thousands during Super Bowl week. My friend Ken Maxwell has a gorgeous townhouse/loft in the Deep Ellum historic district. He wants $16,000 for the week plus a $5000 security deposit. As far as I know, still no takers.
