Donald Trump's childhood home coming to auction

Is this the ultimate piece of Donald Trump memorabilia? The Republican nominee's childhood home auctions next month.

The mock Tudor, five-bedroom home in Queens, New York City has an $849,000 opening bid, reports Newsday.

It also boasts four bathrooms, a two-car garage and a fully furnished basement.

The future real-estate mogul lived in the house from birth until around the age of four.

The owners say they have chosen an auction because they want to see how much the house is worth. That and the fact nobody bought the house when they first listed it for $1.6m in July.

"We're not going to have a problem selling it," Howard Kaminowitz of Laffey Real Estate told Newsday. "This is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the Trump bump."

Indeed, should Trump become America's next president, this house - which is named on his birth certificate - could become a place of great historical interest.

Donald Trump memorabilia is hugely popular with his supporters. "Our sales for political buttons and stickers are about 70% Trump and 30% Clinton," Adam Ratliff of Dr. Dons Buttons told JustCollecting in July.

Celebrity houses often sell for far above the going rate for similar homes in the area. John Lennon's childhood home in Liverpool auctioned for ?�480,000 ($772,000) in 2013. Other houses on the street make around ?�150,000. Check out the top 10 famous homes ever sold.

The auction takes place at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan on October 19.
