Augusta residents lease out houses for Masters

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Haley Hellickson has lived in Augusta for 14 years, and when she first heard about people renting out their houses for Masters week, she couldn't believe it.

"I thought it was crazy, and now of course I'm in deep with it," she says with a laugh.

This is her second year renting out her house on Magnolia Dr for mMsters week and says this event is part of the reason she bought the house.

"It's really good money, honestly it's a good investment that's actually why I bought the house," says Hellickson.

She lives less than half a mile from the course and says her location brings in good money for the week.

"You can bring at least, I would say about $5,000," she says.

And she started preparing for this year a long time ago.

"I started doing some of the painting and all that kind of stuff and purchasing, as far as like the linens and all of that right after the previous Masters was finished," Haley says.

But she won't be staying in her house this week.

"I may house hop honestly, I'm not really sure. I haven't figured it out," she says.

And the advice she has for people looking to lease their house out for future tournaments is to start early.

"Start Masters of this year, market yourself and if you want it rented you can get it rented," she says.

Haley has already been asked about her house for next year, but for right now she's just focused on preparing for tomorrow.
