How Did A Community Organizer Get So Rich
NEWSER) – It's not the White House, but Barack and Michelle Obama clearly aren't too disappointed with their new Washington, DC, home: After renting it for several months, they've opted to buy it, reports People. The Obamas purchased the 8,200-square-foot home in the Kalorama neighborhood this week for $8.1 million, snatching it up from NFL executive Joe Lockhart, who bought it for $5.3 million in 2014, reports the Washington Post. Since the family plans to stay in Washington until Sasha, 15, finishes high school, "it made sense for them to buy a home rather than continuing to rent property," a rep says.
Note: The Obama's now own three multi-million dollar homes. Life is grand for rick politicians.
