Trump's Childhood Home in Queens Goes to Auction

(The New York Times)

Donald Trump's childhood home in Jamaica Estates, Queens, New York is set for auction Tuesday, The New York Times reports.

Trump lived there from birth to age 4 and his father, real estate developer Fred Trump, built it.

"The value of Trump's name, the value of the president-elect living there as a child, an infant, that value is impossible to define," Paramount Realty USA principal Misha Haghani said. "It's unique, and it has intangible value that goes beyond the physical real estate."

The sale was set for October 2016, but was postponed when Trump was the Republican presidential candidate. Haghani said interest in the house has grown since then.

Trump has said he might be interested in buying the house himself, The Times notes.  Haghani said he contacted the Trump Organization, but has not yet heard back.

"You're not actually getting anything of tangible value for the Trump association, it's all intangible. It's like a baseball card. It's worth whatever it's worth to you," Haghani said. 

An upstairs bedroom where Trump was said to have slept is decorated in red, white, and blue, The Times reports. 

Real estate prospector Michael Davis owns the house. The Times reported that he bought it in 2016 for $1.4 million and planned on flipping it.
