President Donald Trump’s childhood home will go back on the market this week. The Jamaica Estates house will be available to the highest bidder through a sealed bidding process.
Trump lived in the home at 85-15 Wareham Road from the time of his birth in 1946 until 1950. The home, cited on the president’s birth certificate, boasts 17 beds is located near the F train. The five-bedroom house sold at auction in March 2017 for $2.1 million.
ACRIS records show the property was previously sold in December 2016 to Wareham Holdings LLC, which CNN Money associates with real estate investor Michael Davis, for $1.3 million. The March 2017 transaction is shown to take place between this organization and another listed as “Trump Birth House, LLC.”
If the CNN Money report is correct, Davis flipped the property for a 54 percent profit to another company, harvesting rental revenue from the president’s Queens legacy.
Trump commented on the sale of his childhood home in September 2016, when he was shown a picture of the residence on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
“That is where I was born,” Trump said when Fallon held up an image of the home. “I had a really good childhood. Oh, that’s sad to look at that. I want to buy it.”
