New York Attorney General Letitia James, after a New York judge fined Donald Trump and his adult sons $464 million, including interest, for inflating their assets to obtain better business deals, said she could begin the process of seizing Trump’s assets if the former president is unable to pay or secure a bond by Monday’s deadline.

Here’s a look at Trump’s properties and what Judge Arthur Engoron, in his rulings, determined they are worth — as well as what Trump has claimed about their value as recently as 2020.

Trump National Golf Club Westchester, Briarcliff Manor, New York

18-hole golf course with pool, tennis courts, and venue space

Trump’s claimed value: Trump listed the value of the course between $43 million and $78 million, and he valued the undeveloped land between $25M-$105M.

Judge’s finding: A professional appraisal listed the potential development as worth $45 million in 2013, and the golf course itself was worth $16.5 million according to a 2014 appraisal.

Seven Springs estate, Bedford, New York

200-acre estate in Westchester County originally purchased by Trump in 1995 for $7.5 million

Trump’s claimed value: Between $261 million and $291 million (on 2011-2014 statements of financial condition)

Judge’s finding: Between $30 million and $56.6 million (2015 appraisal at $56.6 million assumed a planned development)
