Update 12/22/2016: A mystery buyer has officially snagged the childhood home of the country's president-elect.
announced that a New York investor purchased the Queens home — but whoever bought it won't be getting cozy in it. The buyer plans to take it to auction next month on January 17, just days before Trump's inauguration, reports .
The realty company did not identify who the New York investor was, but the reports the house sold for $1.25 million (it was originally listed for $1.65 million).
Sneaking suspicion: Could it be Trump himself? Or is he too busy planning how to rule the free world? The president-elect did tell Jimmy Fallon in September that he wanted to buy it back on "The Tonight Show."
Whoever snagged it certainly understands investments: Experts estimate that the home could now be worth up to $10 million due to Trump's election. Childhood homes of presidents, after all, are quite rare to come across.
Originally 07/18/2016: Every real estate mogul has to start somewhere. For Donald Trump, it was a six-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath Tudor-style home in Jamaica Estates, Queens, which just hit the market for $1.65 million.
"Potentially significant," the reads. "This property is the birthplace of presidential candidate Donald Trump." Aah, yes. We would say that is potentially significant.
Well, Trump was technically born at nearby Jamaica Hospital, but this is the same address listed on the presumed Republican presidential candidate's 1946 birth certificate, points out.
Trump's father, Fred Trump, owned his own construction business and built Tudor, Victorian-, and colonial-style homes for the upper middle class. reports that the elder Trump built a larger house around the corner from the property in question in 1950, and that the family moved there when Donald was four years old.
Built in 1940, the listing touts the 2,000-square-foot home's fireplace, formal dining room, screened-in patio, and two outdoor entrances. The home is currently owned by a New York City restauranteur. According to real estate agent Howard Kaminowitz, if Trump gets elected, it "would automatically become a historic site."
Speaking of the real estate agent, Kaminowitz, too, is a character: He's previously sold eight houses of worship and the home of serial killer Joel Rifkin. Sheesh.
