Homes owned or rented by Obama: Barack and Michelle Obama own a 6-bedroom, 6-bath mansion on South Greenwood Avenue in Chicago, bought for $1.65 million in 2005. Built in 1910, the two-story, 6,500-square-foot house features a 600-bottle wine cellar and 3 fireplaces.

When the Obamas go on winter vacation, they rent an oceanfront mansion in Kailua, Hawaii, for about $3,500 to $6,000 a night. For summer vacation, they rent a 28-acre estate on Martha’s Vineyard for about $50,000 a week.
