The former House Speaker bought this 5,206-square-foot house in May, 2000 for $995,000, according to public records. The two-story home was built in 1987 in McLean, Va., a high-end suburb of D.C. There are 5 bedrooms and 4-1/2 bathrooms on just less than half an acre.
The brick Colonial-style house turned out to be a decent investment. The home is currently valued at $1.3 million, 30% higher than the purchase price, according to real estate site Zillow's market analysis.
Certain 2012 candidates are worth hundreds of millions, others far less.
