President Donald Trump’sNew York City childhood home, where he lived until he was 4 years old, is up for auction again after it failed to sell for $US2.9 million, The New York Times reported.

The home was previously listed for $US2.9 million in February and went to auction with Paramount Realty USA just 10 days later.

Misha Haghani, the founder of Paramount Realty USA, told Mansion Global he expects the house to sell for between $US2 million and $US6 million.

“The value is not in the bricks and mortar, it is in the association with the president of the United States,” Haghani told the publication.

The house last changed hands in 2017, when the previous owner, real estate investor Michael Davis, sold it for $US2.14 million to Trump Birth House LLC, according to The New York Post.

In August 2017, the house was even listed on Airbnb – for $US725 a night, The Post reported.

Here’s a look inside.

There is an undisclosed minimum price on Trump’s childhood home, meaning the seller will be able to refuse any offer below that. The auction will close on November 14.
