Additional items to take into consideration when estimating a replacement cost include numerous detached structures including: sports court, pool/hot tub/spa, basketball court, tennis court spread over 18 acres.
Discounts the White House might qualify for

So, what would it cost to insure the White House?
Let’s do the math. The White House is how many times more expensive than the average American home across the US:
The White House with an estimated value of: $398,661,124
Typical middle America home with a replacement value of: $250,000
The number of times the White House is more valuable = 1,594
Annual home insurance premium on a $250,000 home x $1,200
The White House estimated annual insurance premium $1,912,800
Yes, that is a lot of money, but based on the scale of it all it’s still less than 5 tenth of a percent of the full value; a real bargain if you can wrap your mind around the numbers.
