Biz Brief: Oops! Real Estate Website Lists White House 'For Sale'

President Barack Obama isn't yet ready to vacate his residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., but that didn't stop real-estate website Redfin from recently, if incorrectly, posting that the White House was for sale.

According to UrbanTurf, a site about real estate in Washington, Redfin had the 55,000-square-foot presidential estate listed as being "For Sale by Owner" at a cool $10 million.

But to the disappointment of prospective home buyers, the ad was in fact a mistake, and the property isn't up for sale, CBSNews.com reported. After the mistake was revealed, Redfin updated their site to note that the listing was an "Off-Market Property."
