Blacksburg rental prices spike during VT home game weekends


A new report from vacation rental company VRBO shows homeowners in Blacksburg have a chance to cash in big.

Last year during Virginia Tech home football game weekends, the average nightly rate for a vacation rental spiked to $685.

Demand for rentals also increased about 255%.

VRBO says Blacksburg ranked sixth among college cities for home rentals.

The most profitable game weekend last year was during Virginia Tech’s home game against Notre Dame.

Then, homeowners earned on average $841 for their rental.
