Dom on the BBC OneShow presented a piece about letting private houses to elite competitors during major sport events. Wimbledon residents can make up to £7000 per week. In 2012 Olympic competitors, media etc will flood into London looking for accomodation. Has anybody out there posted ads on those sites yet? Sounds like serious cash will be available.
....also there is no mention of specific sites in my original posting, merely an acknowledgement of the London 2012 financial opportunities out there for Londoners. Anyway, as the finacing of the Olympic Village is in some doubt I would have thought the concept of private short lets is a concept to promote not resist. Certainly LOCOG know all about the London site that facilitates this as I understand they were party to agreeing it's final construction. The issues involving branding were well covered in the media.
