The owners of the vacant land next to Obama's home in Chicago's Kenwood neighborhood are trying to sell the 50- foot-by-150-foot lot at 5050 S. Greenwood Ave. for $899,000.
The owners purchased it in 2008 for $675,000.
Potential buyers will have to show their financial wherewithal as well as submit their names to the Secret Service 24 hours ahead of time, said properties agent Anthony Rouches, who has the listing.
"I offered it to Obama through the Secret Service. They weren't interested," Rouches said. "The Secret Service mows the lawn over there, with the president's lawn mower."
