The office of the Queens County Public Administrator has scheduled the auction of seven co-ops with starting bids ranging between $56,000 and $176,000.
Also on the block March 9 at 11 a.m. will be 10 single-family homes and a condo (from what I can tell) with bids starting between $162,000 to $950,000. The high upset price is for a place at 141-42 11th Ave., Malba.
And if you’d like to buy a big bunch of properties all at once, there’s a significant auction of a foreclosed East Harlem complex scheduled for March 11 at 11 a.m.

Don your roller skates, mount your bicycles, hop on your skateboards and get to the inspections, which will be March 6 and 7 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The auction itself will be 11 a.m. (SHARP! says the administrator) at 88-11 Sutphin Blvd., Room 62, Jamaica.
Offers have to be made in person at the auction, and a nonrefundable deposit in the form of a bank or certified check is required of each bidder for 10 percent of the upset price. The check should be made out to the bidder to be endorsed at the auction.
Closing must be all cash within 30 days of the auction.
Additional details and photos of these estate sales are available on the public administrator’s Web site, but I didn’t find them.
The East Harlem auction is for Riverton Square Apartments, 12 13-story elevator buildings with 1,229 residential units. The auction in the rotunda of the courthouse at 60 Centre St. is to satisfy a judgment of $240.6 million, plus interest and costs. More info: Contact Alex Guggenheim at 202-715-9548.
