Queens auction produces $3M in winning bids

This Long Island City house fetched the highest price among eight properties at auction.

With three of 11 properties withdrawn, the estate auction of ultimately one co-op and seven houses in Queens netted $2.944 million for the city today.

The total topped the collective minimum price of $1.991 million by nearly $1 million.  The gain amounted to 48 percent more than the sum of what Queens Public Administrator Lois Rosenblatt terms the “upset price.”

Properties on the block ranged in price between $120,000 and $600,000 in neighborhoods including Long Island City, Jamaica and Jackson Heights.

The auction took place late this morning in Jamaica.

I wasn’t able to attend or to call the public administrator during office hours, so I am mystified by the one winning bid, which was for the lone apartment in the sale, below the advertised upset price.

As for the apartment and houses withdrawn prior to the sale, that is a routine occurrence.

Tomorrow: It takes 3 kinds
