He's not even trying for much of a profit. Geithner and his wife bought the home for $950,000 in 2009, according to Curbed. The 2,537-square-foot home has four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, and it has been renovated since being built in 1954. It's had a family-room addition, and the kitchen has been upgraded with stainless steel appliances.

The downstairs part of the house could be a living area all its own. It has two recreational areas and its own living room and office. Don't miss the sizable backyard with a "gorgeous deck." Geithner left the Obama administration in January, and he's penning a memoir about his experience helping to lead the country through the financial crisis. The book is expected to be published in 2014, according to The Wall Street Journal.
