Presidential candidates Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump are getting so worked up about winning their nominations and tearing into their electoral rivals that they might have forgotten just how much being president will change their lives. Whoever gets the top job later this year will be forced to uproot themselves and their families into a new home – the White House no less.
Having lived their for eight years previously, Hilary will probably know that residing in the White House comes with its own benefits, concerns and also its potential downsides, and these can all have an impact on the health, safety and financial security of whoever lives there.
Keeping that in mind, real estate data firm RealtyTrac has come up with an ever-so-slightly tongue-in-cheek “pre-diligence” report on the White House, for whoever ends up living there for the next four years. In addition, RealtyTrac has also provided comparative data with both presidential candidates’ current homes, so they can better understand what they’re letting themselves in for.
The reports are summarized in the following fun infographic, illustrating the concerns, benefits and disadvantages of taking up residency in the White House. Who has the best home of all?
