Childhood home of Donald Trump to be sold at auction

(AP) - The childhood home in New York City of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is set to be auctioned and the opening bid is $849,000.



Newsday reports the Queens home, which is listed on Trump's birth certificate, will be auctioned on Oct. 19 at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan.



The 3,600-square-foot Tudor has five bedrooms, a fully furnished basement and a two-car garage. It had been listed in July for $1.65 million.



The owners say they put it up for auction because they want to see what it's worth.



Open house events are planned for Sept. 25, Oct. 6 and Oct. 16.



Auction participants must bring a bank or certified check for $90,000 to the auction.



Auction officials say a reserve price hasn't been disclosed but has been set.
