obama-familyCHICAGO – Be President Barack Obama’s neighbor for a cool $1.85 million. 

The 17-room, 6,000 square foot (557 sq metres) brick house for sale adjacent to Obama’s Chicago home needs work to update the kitchen and bathrooms, but there is no need to worry about break-ins, the seller says. 

“It’s definitely got phenomenal security. A whole team of Secret Service agents is posted 20 feet (6 metres) away” night and day, real estate agent Matt Garrison said.

 ”Some people may view that as a negative thing but we’re looking for buyers who see it as a positive thing,” Garrison said.

 Prospective owners won’t face daily searches, Garrison said, but visitors will likely have to be cleared in advance.
