Heading into the Party conventions the people of Charlotte and Tampa are seeing dollar signs. In some cases, very big dollar signs.
AP highlights one guy who listed his three-bedroom home for rent in Charlotte, where the Democratic convention is being held. His price: $7,000 per week. A steal!
For any of our readers who plan on attending the conventions, we took a look at what kind of deals might be found on Craigslist at this moment. What we found...
This "super nice house" located 10 minutes from Downtown Charlotte. For some reason three of the listed photos draw heavy attention to a man fishing nearby. Presumably, he's included in the $9,500 asking price.
This '92 Mercury Marquis without hubcaps. The seller says it "would be perfect for a cab company needing more cars for the upcoming Democratic National Convention." Asking price: $900.
For the RNC (Aug. 27-30):
This four-bedroom home that comes with a "professional grade Ping Pong Table." Asking price: $3,800
This pro-Mitt Romney Tea Party shirt that says "Let's Brew It." Asking price: $30 (price goes down if you buy more than five!)
Hope this helps.
