If you think I'd pay £200 to see some handball, you got another thing coming

Can I really make a killing renting out my flat during London 2012? Since I didn't get tickets, I'm thinking about my Plan B, which is getting the hell outta dodge for the summer.

I have a nice flat in a nice part of Walthamstow. You can practically see the Olympic stadium from the backyard. If you were standing on a ladder, and that tree wasn't there. But still.
Despite the proximity, it's not that quick to get to the Olympic park, 30 - 45 minutes by public transport, or about 20 minutes on a bike. It's about 25 minutes to the city or the west end. But it is Walthamstow, even if it is nice in my little bit. I know there's several sites online where people are advertising private accommodation, but I just don't know what the demand is. Will there really be people willing to pay for the privilege of staying in Walthamstow for 3 weeks?
