Winning bids at Wednesday’s estate auction of eight houses and three co-ops totaled $4.135 million, 28 percent more than the $3.201 million sum of the minimum prices set by Queens Public Administrator Lois Rosenblatt.

The East Elmhurst property shown above was the standout: It reached $740,000 vs. the upset price of $488,000.

Minimum (upset) prices are set by Rosenblatt at 25 percent below the appraised value.

Included in the auction were properties in Brooklyn, Bellerose and Flushing.
