When it comes to Donald Trump, people are always eager to take advantage of his popularity for personal gain.
The latest example of this is a Manhattan real estate developer who nearly doubled his money in a matter of a few months after purchasing Trump’s childhood home in Queens.
Michael Davis bought the two-story, Tudor-style home for $1.39 million just after the November election through an auction conducted by Paramount Realty USA, the New York Post reported.
He sold the home, previously owned by a couple who reportedly bought it in 2008 for $782,500, last week to another investor for a cool $2.14 million.
“This property is so much more than just real estate; it’s the childhood home of the 45th president of the United States, and it’s a part of history,” said Misha Haghani, principal of Paramount Realty USA, according to The Post.
Inside Edition offers a tour of the home in the video below:
The property’s address, 85-15 Wareham Place in Jamaica Estates, is listed on Trump’s birth certificate as his home address.
Then-candidate Trump was shown a photo of the home during a September appearance on “The Tonight Show,” and he told host Jimmy Fallon “that’s where I was born.”
Trump said at the time he wanted to buy the home, but he better hurry because it’s a seller’s market!
