Public administrator schedules auction of 23 properties in Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island

Multifamily building in Brooklyn with $604,000 minimum bid

An estate auction of a Brooklyn multifamily building, five apartments and 17 single-family houses will be conducted Dec. 13 starting at 11 a.m., according to an announcement by Queens Public Administrator Lois Rosenblatt.

Minimum prices range from $78,000 for a one-bedroom co-op in Jackson Heights to $$604,000 for an apartment building in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn.

Four of the properties are on the block for the second time, and three that had been withdrawn from September’s sale prior to the event have been listed again.

As for the returning apartments, each had received a winning bid, and I can only speculate why they are back.  Two of the possibilities are the co-op boards rejected the applicants as shareholders (whose deposits are refunded in that case) or the buyers were unable or unwilling to close within the specified time.

The Gandhi unit (details below) went for $205,000, $55,000 over the minimum; the Garfinkle apartment sold for $190,000, $70,000 over; the Genova apartment reached $106,000, $8,000 over; and the Koenig property went down at $130,000, $47,000 over the minimum.

Withdrawn from September’s auction were the estates of Matthews, Stewart and Taft.
