Hamptons International has put together a report detailing the gold, silver and bronze medal winning opportunities to make money from property during the Olympics.
The report says more than one million visitors will descend on London for the 2012 Olympic Games including spectators, competitors, officials and sponsors.
Third on the podium goes to homeowners looking to sell in the Olympic locations away from the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park - the likes of Weymouth, Windsor & Eton and Hadley Farm in Essex.
These places will all be in their 'Sunday Best' during the Games and could take advantage of the feel good factor to attract passing potential buyers.
Windsor & Eton for instance is expecting to host 30,000 visitors a day during the Olympic rowing competition - a high level of footfall to be passing a for sale sign...
The runner-up spot in Hamptons' eyes goes to large-scale residential development investment opportunities.
The report says that tens of thousands of new homes will be built in the East of London in the coming years, 11,000 of which will be within the 500-acre Olympic Park.
This new housing supply creates opportunities, but also a high degree of potential risk for investors. Selecting the right development will be crucial for profitable investment off the back of the Olympics.
And the top prize goes to those looking to put their home on the market for a short-term letting.
Hamptons says visitors will be looking to stay from as short as one week up to six months.
For prospective landlords Hamptons says a typical short let tenant so far as an average budget of £1,225 per week to spend, with a range from £160 to £40,000 and is seeking two bedrooms and two bathrooms with 96% looking for furnished accommodation.
Some requirements it has picked up on include:
* A French media advisor, seeking space for six to eight weeks as close as possible to Stratford for up to 15 staff;
* A concierge service business that requires up to eight one-bedroom apartments in Victoria for staff to be able to quickly support clients in local hotels for the duration of the Games; and
* A news agency that requires space for up to 20 staff in or around the City Fringe with easy access to Liverpool Street Station.
Sounds pretty encouraging...
And such is Hamptons confidence in its gold-medal prediction, it has started a dedicated short-let matching service between tenancy requirements and opportunistic landlords.
