Donald Trump's Childhood Home in Queens, NY, Sold at Auction

Posted January 18, 2017

The owner of President-elect Donald Trump's first childhood home is weighing bids after the New York City house went up for auction for the second time in three months.

The Tudor-style home is located in Jamaica Estates, a neighborhood in Queens, New York. The listing was taken down due to lack of interest, according to the New York Post, and the previous owners, Isaac Kestenberg and his estranged wife, Claudia, planned to auction it off in October 2016.

The home is being sold on behalf of Michael Davis, a real estate prospector who bought it past year for just under $1.4 million with the intention of flipping it.

The boyhood home of President-elect Donald Trump, which is going back on the auction block, is shown, Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2017, in NY.

"The value of the property is intangible", he said.

The home has previously been listed on the market for as much as $1.65 million. "Its worth is up to the bidder to tell us".

Adjusted earnings per share were 96 cents, short of $1.00 estimated by analysts who were polled by S&P Global Market Intelligence. Macquarie restated an "underperform" rating on shares of Wells Fargo & Company in a research note on Tuesday, October 18th.

"Trump is the 45th president, so there are only 45 childhood homes of USA presidents", Haghani said.

Before this, the home last changed hands in 2008, when it was purchased for $782,500. The 3,600-square-foot home, with a full finished basement, also features a two-car garage.

Paramount principal Misha Haghani says "there's no doubt it's more valuable" than it was when first offered, before the Republican's election win.

Shown a photograph of it in September while on "The Tonight Show", Trump told host Jimmy Fallon: "Oh, that's sad to look at that".

The home - built in 1940 by Trump's father, Fred, who was a developer - includes an eat-in kitchen, a formal dining room and 4 1⁄2 bathrooms.

Haghani said in December when the auction date was announced that Davis "believes there was no premium paid for the home and the auction will help him realize that full market price".
