Can You Guess How Much The White House Is Worth?

No, Barack and Michelle aren't thinking of selling. But if they were...

First, some specs. This six-level home, constructed during the last decade of the 18th century, is 55,000 square feet, with a lot size of over 784,000 square feet.

There are 16 bedrooms in the home.

This is the famous Lincoln Bedroom.

And 35 bathrooms.

The home features 28 different fireplaces.

And, of course, there's a chef's kitchen.

Literally. The White House has five full-time chefs.

So, any guesses about what this place is worth?

Well, according to the real estate website Zillow, its value is...

$319,483,628!

Or a much more reasonable $1,805,719 in monthly rent.

To help put that in perspective, the average price of an American home in 2010 was $272,900.

According to Census data.

Which means that the White House is valued at just over 1,170 times the amount of the average American home.

Oh, and in case you're feeling audacious, Zillow does recommend some local real estate agents to get in touch with about the property.
