Seattle Houseboats On Lake Union – Inventory Is Afloat!
Seattle Is Afloat! There are several pending Seattle houseboats in the MLS as well, but I wanted to go ahead and get some basic info about what is available for sale on Lake Union right now. There are FIVE ACTIVE Seattle floating homes for sale currently in the NWMLS. There are also a couple Seattle houseboats for rent if you are interested in those so please let us know.
A quick note about Lake Union water homes definitions… (This post is about just SEATTLE FLOATING HOMES for sale. The term “Seattle houseboats” is an umbrella term which covers floating homes, vessels, barges, and now Seattle floating on-water residences. It has recently become unnecessarily more intricate than it ever needed to be, but it is what it is and we would be happy to help clarify it for you. Historically, though, Seattlelites refer to all forms of these types of floating abodes as “Seattle Houseboats“.)
OK, back to the Lake Union news! There are five Seattle floating homes that are for sale currently. They range in price from $395,000 for a 1 bedroom in Portage Bay to $1,595,000 for a 2 bedroom floating gem in the prestigious Mallard Cove floating homes community in Eastlake. The median list price of these incedible Lake Union floating residences is $948,000 which also happens to be the list price of our Westlake floating home for sale right now. There are two Eastlake houseboats for sale in this mix, two in Portage Bay, and one in Westlake. All three Lake Union houseboats communities offer different Seattle Waterfront Living℠ styles and each one is unique in character and charm. The average days on market is 21 days currently and the average dollar per square foot is $802.91 per square foot. Square footage on floating home docks is not a reliable source of value always because there are so many structures of ownership to take into account. Each Seattle floating home is different and there are also no two docks alike on Lake Union.

This gorgeous Westlake floating home is dialed in and located on a pet friendly and very sought after dock in Lake Union! Completely remodeled in 2008 with all new surfaces and appliances plus immaculate upstairs master suite and another bedroom/office on the main level. Lots of storage and extras!”
Ownership in a Marina – Another interesting asset of this Westlake floating home:
This is a unique dock on the lake in that it has its own marina! In all of houseboat living, this is not common. There are 9 slips in this Westlake marina location. Each of the 12 floating home owners on the dock have a 1/12 interest in this marina which is separately financed and being paid for in part by coop fees. It is on schedule to be paid off in 2019. The idea is that once the Marina is paid off in full, it will generate enough income to perhaps eliminate the coop dues altogether and could even provide additional income.
