Via Curbed DC, we learn the White House look-a-like in Haymarket was on the market for $1,445,000 in March. The Bank of America foreclosure sold this week for $865,000.
The house has more than 15,000 square feet with six bedrooms and seven full baths. It's described in real estate listings as being a "fixer-upper" with "rehab potential."
The actual White House has 16 bedrooms and 35 bathrooms. Earlier this year, thereal estate site Movoto.com found the house to be worth an estimated $110 million.
Other White House look-alikes dot the American landscape. Those houses seemingly don't always have the easiest time selling, too. A short sale in Las Vegas was listed on Craigslist for $225,000. Atlanta's White House replica had such a hard time selling that CNN profiled the sad situation. Chicago's blue version of the White House also had a rough time on the market.
Virginia's other White House look-alike, in McLean, was listed for over $4.5 millionmore than a year ago. Curbed notes its price was lowered by $400,000, then was taken off the market in March -- there was speculation that the house might soon be relisted again with an even lower price.
The homes face more than just a problematic resale market. They also sometimes face hostile neighbors.
