Trump’s Childhood Home Sells for $2.1 Million

in News by

Donald Trump’s childhood home, located in the Queens district of New York City, has sold for $ 2.14 million. That is significantly more than the average price of for that neighborhood’s homes, but less than the expected price.

The house is situated in the wealthy neighborhood of Jamaica Estates, in the eastern part of Queens, and was inhabited by the now-President during his first four years of childhood with its address listed on his birth certificate.  Afterwards, the family moved to a nearby larger home that his father Fred Trump had built.

When the house went up for sale, Donald Trump lamented that it was “sad” and expressed an interest in purchasing it but the head of the real estate agency that sold the house has not revealed the new owner but indicated it is not Donald Trump.

The price paid is significantly higher than that of equivalent assets in the neighborhood – which average approximately $1.6 million – but lower than the $3 million realtors had predicted after Donald Trump’s presidential election.

The exterior of the house is a mixture of imitation British style Tudor, half-timbered, and red brick. It was built in 1940 and has five bedrooms and four bathrooms.

The property was originally to be auctioned in mid-October, but the owners decided to withdraw it from the market, pending the outcome of the presidential election. However they ended up selling it for $1.39 million to an anonymous buyer that then soon put it back on the market for this sale.

You can see photos of the interior from when it was first on the market this past summer.
