Owners of Trump’s childhood home postpone auction

The sellers are hoping to attract more buyers via media hype

The Tudor-style Jamaica Estates home built by Fred Trump was scheduled to hit the auction block this week. But the sale was postponed, apparently to give potential buyers more time to see the home.

The home at 85-15 Wareham Place was scheduled to be auctioned off at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan Wednesday. But the owners canceled the sale at the last second, a representative for Paramount told DNAinfo.

The auction will likely be rescheduled for November or December.

“The sellers elected to postpone the auction in order to provide prospective bidders with more time to evaluate the property,” Paramount Realty USA, which had co-organized the auction with the property’s listing broker Laffey Real Estate, said in a statement.
