Single-family home at 23-31 37th St., Long Island City, fetches highest price in public administrator’s auction, going way over its minimum.
The auction Wednesday of 15 apartments and single-family homes in an estate sale by Queens Public Administrator Lois Rosenblatt will add $6.012 million to the city’s coffers.
All of the properties remaining after three apartments were routinely withdrawn before the event, which was held in the State Supreme Court building in Jamaica, found buyers.
Proceeds exceeded by $1.6 million the total of $4.412 minimum prices set by the public administrator, or 36 percent.
Although a Long Island City house that had been withdrawn from previous sales twice received the highest winning bid, $935,000, a Woodside house that went for $315,000 registered the biggest percentage gain over the minimum.
The Long Island City property went for Continue reading

85-10 Park Lane South, Woodhaven
The estate auction of ultimately 14 properties on Tuesday produced $5.83 million in winning bids, according to Queens Public Administrator Lois Rosenblatt.
The total was 40 percent higher than the collective $3.772 million minimum.
Although Rosenblatt’s office has told me that the public administrator typically sets minimum bids at 25 percent above appraised values, some of the properties obviously went for considerably more.
The results seem to suggest a trend of rising interest in Queens residences that was detectable in Rosenblatt’s previous event.
A Corona house that was owned by one George Williams actually was hammered down for more than twice its upset price Continue reading
In Forest Hills, this house has an upset price of $724,000
An estate auction of 16 houses and eight apartments will be conducted Sept. 13 starting at 11 a.m., according to Queens Public Administrator Lois Rosenblatt.
Minimum prices range from $83,000 for a one-bedroom co-op in Jackson Heights to $724,000 for the two-story house shown above in Forest Hills.
At 77-27 Kew Forest Lane, the house is a two-story structure being sold “subject to tenancy.” Its owner was one Stephen Nedeicu, and taxes amount to $5,860 annually.
One of the apartments on the block is a 499-sf Manhattan studio at 101 W. 12th St., which has an upset price of $330,000.
Minimum bids are set by Rosenblatt at 25 percent below the appraised value.

This property at 195 Keno Ave., Holliswood, went for 35 percent over the minimum bid.
Tuesday’s estate auction by Queens Public Administrator Lois Rosenblatt of ultimately 20 co-ops and houses Tuesday eked out 1 percent more than the total minimum bids of $$4.315 million.
The amount of winning bids reached $4.355 million.
Although I wasn’t present, the results suggest spirited bidding for the properties that went down; many of them significantly exceeded the administrator’s upset prices.
Accounting for the merely apparent weakness in the total were four properties for which nobody raised a hand.
I’d say that the auction went quite well and the results may — may — indicate that the Queens housing market is beginning to regain a modicum of health. I don’t know to what else can be attributed the substantial sums for which many of the properties went over the minimum bids, unless they were significantly underpriced.
Below are the minimum and winning bids: Continue reading
