Yes; floating homes do sell year round.
Two words: Indian Summer. 

I don’t know about you, but I completely look forward to our beautiful Indian Summers (a period of unusually dry, warm weather occurring in late autumn) here in the Pacific Northwest.  I actually prefer the other definition of Indian Summer; a period of happiness occurring late in life.

Don’t wait until “late in life”.  The time is now.  Time to enjoy happiness all the time by living on a floating home!

We thought you’d like a quick snap shot of what the last six months have looked like for floating home sales.

12 homes sold with a median sold price of $747,500 on a 969 sq ft footprint.

The least expensive floating home sold for $475,000 was a darling one bed, one bath, 555 square feet; perfectly remodeled from head to toe in Portage Bay.

The most expensive floating home sold so far was a cool $2M on a fantastic co-op dock in Eastlake. It had beautiful outdoor spaces, custom built ins and only one bed, one bath over 1.367 square feet.  Finishes were divine and the architecture was exquisite.  view 2 One of our favorite floating homes just sold for $1.5M. Sitting pretty at the end of a condo owned Portage Bay dock, this home felt like a cabin on the water with privacy that can be sometimes hard to find on a floating home. It was so far out on the lake that you were able to high five kayakers as they paddled by.

Whether it’s Westlake, Eastlake, or Portage Bay if you’re looking for a unique lifestyle that is like no other in Seattle, you’ve come to the right place. There are some really fantastic floating homes on the market right now. Call Molly Cartwright or Courtney Cooper today and let’s talk.
