Real estate agents say Geithner recently rented out his Westchester County home after it didn't sell — even though he reduced the price to less than he paid.

Geithner put the five-bedroom Tudor near Larchmont on the market for $1.635 million in February.

Agents Scott Stiefvater of Stiefvater Real Estate and Debbie Meiliken of Keller Williams Realty say the house was rented for $7,500 a month on May 21, a few weeks after the asking price was dropped to $1.575 million.

Neither was directly involved in the rental. Treasury Department representatives didn't immediately return calls.
