Contrary to popular belief, Super Bowl tickets can still be bought for a bargain. But for a hopeful attendee to this year’s game in Arizona, a $359,000 house between the Glendale and Scottsdale area will also be included.
According to Zillow, the 2,114-square-foot home – equipped with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and master suite filled with an oversized shower, large bathroom and walk-in closet – will include quite the unique perk for prospective buyers willing to sign on the dotted line in the next two days. If they pull the trigger and purchase the house, two Super Bowl XLIX tickets will be included for free to Sunday’s game at University of Phoenix Stadium.
The unusual incentive has made headlines around Phoenix, so much so that nearly three to four showings have been made on the house each day over the last week. With Super Bowl tickets now exceeding the $10,000 average on the secondary market, the house has become an added investment – albeit somewhat expensive – for the fan hell-bent on getting past the turnstile on Sunday.
While the homeowners don’t have any plans of attending the game, it’s likely that they won’t have any problems selling the tickets off if their house-and-ticket bundle doesn’t materialize by Sunday. Get-in price for Super Bowl XLIX tickets on TicketIQ is now set at $7,774, meaning that they’ll pocket anywhere between $15 and $20,000 if the market holds firm.
With just two days remaining before the Patriots and Seahawks square off in the 49th edition of the Super Bowl, people are doing just about anything they can to take advantage of the record-breaking ticket prices – even if that means including house keys in the process.
Super Bowl XLIX kicks off at 3:30pm Phoenix local time. Check back here for the latest updates on ticket prices and all Super Bowl information as the game draws closer.
