2,800-Square-Foot Queens Property Goes to Auction with $1M Lien

Turn of the century three-family property in Astoria/Long Island City goes to auction on November 1, 2019 with a lien of just over $1 million. The auction is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. at 8811 Sutphin Boulevard, Jamaica, New York.

35-11 30th Street in Long Island City was bought in 2005 for $785,000. Two mortgages were taken out at the time of the purchase. The first was a $644,000 mortgage and the second was $75,000, both from Mortgage World Bankers. The mortgages were later assigned to U.S. Bank National Association, the current plaintiff in the foreclosure.

A lis pendens was first filed in 2013 by U.S. Bank National Association for $644,000; it expired in 2016 and was renewed in 2017. It remains active, thus leading to the foreclosure of the property. The judgment was handed down on October 4, 2019, for a total of $1,007,292. A Comps search shows the property’s median estimated value to be $1,595,248, based on the recent sale price of nine properties located within a mile of 35-11 30th Street.

35-11 30th Street has a full basement and the average square footage for each of the three units is 955. The 2,864-square-foot property is well situated for mass transit, with the N and Q line just steps away at the 31st Street and 36th Avenue station.
