JACKSON HEIGHTS — A spacious home in the neighborhood's historic district sold for more than $1.3 million, topping previous sales in the area, according to city records.
The semi-detached home at 34-32 86th St. — which features five bedrooms, a formal dining room and french doors to the backyard, according to a listing — closed June 23 for $1.33 million, records show. It was listed at $1.5 million.
It's the priciest home to sell in the area's historic district, which was landmarked in 1993, according to Daniel Karatzas, an associate broker with the Beaudoin Realty Group. He releases a quarterly report of all sales within the 11372 zip code.
The historic district home isn't the most expensive to sell this year in Jackson Heights; in March, a seven-bedroom home on 75th Street sold for $1.36 million, a few hundred thousand dollars shy of the listing price of $1.6 million, records show.
In April, a four-bedroom apartment in The Towers sold for $925,000, the priciest apartment ever sold in the neighborhood.
And in 2013, another house on 86th Street sold for $940,000.
Karatzas said sales of apartments and homes in Jackson Heights continue to rise.
The two sales of more than $1 million helped increase the second-quarter average sales price for single-family homes by 25 percent, he said.
And sales aren't the only things spiking in the area — rents in Jackson Heights are rising faster than in other Queens neighborhood, according to a report released in May.
