Some Columbia homeowners are taking advantage of packed hotels this year by renting out their properties on home game football weekends. MU’s transition to the SEC has inspired a number of homeowners to open their homes for a weekend to visiting fans.
Dan Reidt, local property owner, decided to join the bandwagon after hearing about the money other renters were hoping to earn.
Out-of-town visitors may soon have to pay more to stay in a Columbia hotel. The Missouri House of Representatives approved a measure by a voice vote this week allowing the city to charge an additional three percent tax on hotel stays.
