Queens administrator auction reaps $4.9 million

Note: I’ll be taking a little time off, so there will be fewer posts next week.

The city’s estate auction of 15 Queens properties by owners who died without leaving a will garnered $4.854 million in winning bids for an even dozen apartments and single-family homes on Wednesday.

Three of the properties were withdrawn before the sale, and none of the remaining ones failed to find a buyer.

So. Ozone Park house sold for way more than the minimum.

According to results from Queens Public Administrator Lois Rosenblatt, the highest amount went for a Bayside house with a minimum bid of $536,000; the winning number was $735,000.  The lowest was for a Corona apartment that sold for the minimum of $79,000.

A house, on 135th Pl. in So. Ozone Park, fetched $485,000, an impressive 73 percent more than the upset price of $281,000.

Withdrawn from the auction were a house in Long Island City (which had been set for sale in December),  a Forest Hills apartment and an Astoria house.

Rosenblatt fixes minimum prices at 25 percent below the appraised value
