See Photos of the Obamas' New HousePhotos
family has been living in the house owned by former Clinton White House press secretary Joe Lockhart and his wife, Giovanna Gray. Apparently it's been a good fit, because today the Chicago Sun-Times reported that the Obamas have decided to buy it for $8.1 million: "Given that president and Mrs. Obama will be in Washington for at least another two and a half years, it made sense for them to buy a home rather than continuing to rent property," Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis told the newspaper. (They will reportedly hold onto their Chicago home as well.)
