President-elect Donald Trump’s two-story, Tudor-style childhood home in Queens, New York, is on the market.

The house reportedly will go up for auction at 4 p.m. Tuesday Jan., 17, Business Insider reports.  The current owner is hoping that its connection to the president-elect will fetch a hefty sum, despite it allegedly not being anything special. The current owner purchased the home last year for $1.4 million.

The home was built by Trump’s dad, Fred Trump, a well-known successful New York real estate developer. The house became the president-elect’s residence when he was four years old, and his childhood room is decorated with a map of America, and red, white, and blue bedding.

“It’s unique, and it has intangible value that goes beyond just the physical real estate,” Misha Haghani, the principal of the firm selling the home, told reporters. “The value of Trump’s name, the value of the president-elect living there as a child, an infant, that value is impossible to define.”

The property was originally slated to be sold in October, but was pushed back as interest grew exponentially in the final weeks of the election.
