White House Value: Then and Now

With Obama staying in the White House after a tough campaign, we wondered: “How much is the White House actually worth?”

While it’s true that the first family’s humble abode is unlike any other property in the world, this is what the home would (theoretically) be worth.  But perhaps it could be worth more, as history buffs could want it for their personal collection.

And, just like most properties in the U.S., the White House has faced its share of home value ups and downs. According to Zillow’s custom valuation for the the 132 room mansion, the property has a current estimated value of $284.5 million, up 1.3 percent from $280.8 million in November 2008, but still significantly down from its $299.9 million peak value in June 2006.

Looking forward, the White House’s value could continue on this upward trend. Hopefully the American economy will follow suit!
