Washington Top News:

Peg Mancuso, the president of the Greater Capital Area Association of Realtors, called the area “clearly one of the best neighborhoods in the Washington Metropolitan area.” She said if the reports are true, “He couldn’t have picked a better neighborhood for his family.”

 “It seemed like the perfect choice,” Manusco said.
The mansion’s owners, President Bill Clinton’s former White House press secretary Joe Lockhart and his wife, live in New York, where he works for the NFL. The White House declined to comment on the possibility of the Obamas renting the property, first reported by Politico.
An individual familiar with the Obamas’ plans said they had started their housing search and were currently looking at rental properties in a number of Washington neighborhoods, including Kalorama. The individual wasn’t authorized to discuss the issue publicly and requested anonymity.

The Obamas are staying in Washington after Barack leaves office so that their youngest daughter Sasha can finish high school without interruption.
