“It’s no longer the childhood home of the Republican candidate, it’s now the childhood home of the current president-elect so that makes it part of an exclusive set of properties in this country,” Misha Haghani, owner of Paramount Realty USA, told DNAinfo. It’s a bit more modest than the penthouses and lavish estates Trump has called home since: there’s no gold décor, no marble floors and no grand staircase. It’s about an hour subway-ride from Fifth Avenue.
The 2,500-square foot brick and stucco Tudor home is located in Queens in New York City, and is the first home Trump lived in. It has five bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms.
The property is located in Jamaica Estates, an upscale neighborhood in Queens.
“We believe he lived there from birth until four,” said Haghani. “Then his father moved the family literally around the corner, [the new home] backs up to this house.”
Donald’s father, Fred Trump, who was also in the real estate business, built many of the homes in the neighborhood, including his own, according to Haghani.
Haghani added that Fred is rumored to have put his name under the saddle in the front doorways of some of the homes he built.
But potential buyers shouldn’t go looking for the Trump name at this home. Haghani said part of the front of the house was redone after a tree fell down.
r sale: the childhood home of president-elect Donald Trump.
And since last Wednesday, the owners can expect to get a lot more money for it, as DNAinfo reports.
The 5-bedroom brick & stucco Tudor is located in the affluent Jamaica neighborhood in Queens. Trump lived here until he was four years old and recalled many fond memories of the house during an appearance on the Jimmy Fallon show.
The 2,500-square foot house is set to go to auction soon. The owner of the auction house handling the deal believes that the value of the property has increased dramatically since the election.
“Once Trump is inaugurated, there will be only 45 properties in this country that are the birth homes of presidents so it becomes much more exclusive now,” he added.
The owners originally put the house on the market in October, but then decided to postpone until after the election. Their gamble seems to have worked according to real estate experts.
Tudor houses in the area usually sell for around $2 million, but a Trump fan might pay much more for it.
The auction will likely be scheduled for early December, you can read more about the property here.
