Equity Alert: Eastlake Floating Home For Sale

Seattle floating homes for saleSeattle Houseboats Living For Under $500k! (Equity Potential Alert)

It is difficult to get your feet wet in the Seattle floating homes market for under $500,000.  This is an opportunity to take a solid fixer floating home and make it shine.  Seattle floating homes typically trade for around $900 a square foot with a variance of course for features such as a roof top deck, moorage, dock position, parking, pet policy, etc., but a good rule of thumb is $900/ sq ft which puts this one close to $550,000 minimum and likely closer to $625k fixed up because it does have great dock position. Seattle houseboats for sale

“We are constantly asked if there is a ‘Good Deal’ in the Seattle Floating Homes market…”  – Courtney & Molly

The only “Good Deal” is one you work for and you have to put the work in.  We can find them for you.  Imagine what you could do with this great room concept! And imagine the Fourth Of July parties you could host in the heart of Lake Union!  Buyers love the rustic look of the wood ceilings and it is easy to turn this historic classic into a modern oasis in the city because of the easy interior spaces already in place. Add a slick modern color palette and the combination of historical meets modern is something that no one can resist.

Seattle houseboats remodelingAt 611 square feet and an open concept, the price and size combined with lifestyle beats the heck out of living in a Belltown or South Lake Union condo and you are waterfront.  This is the most affordable in city living and the most affordable Seattle waterfront living. Come home form work and let your troubles fly away as you walk down the dock.  You can have all your water toys right there hanging on your house and you can kayak off your beautiful “back door” in the channel between houseboat rows. Forget trying to drag your canoe down to Lake Union Park and launching it.  Have it at your feet anytime.

This particular floating home is on a coop dock.  This is similar to a condo in that your slip ownership is more secure.  You are not leasing the slip. You are buying a piece of history and have the opportunity to put your stamp on a blank canvas. We are excited to help your Seattle Waterfront Living lifestyle dreams come true!

Call/Text Molly Cartwright at 206-841-6800 or Courtney Cooper at 206-850-8841 for more info or for your own private showing.  You can also email us at houseboats@cooperjacobs.com.  We are Seattle floating homes specialists and experts on the lake. We would love to talk to you about Seattle Waterfront Living and Life Afloat in Seattle!  It’s a special lifestyle and there are lots of interesting differences between living on water and living on land.

Seattle Houseboats:  What A Difference A Few Weeks Makes In The Floating Home World!

Seattle houseboats for sale:  Of the five floating homes available for sale, here is the info:  These range in price from $550,000 to $1,890,000 with a median list price of $1,100,000.  Of these, my favorite is 2017 Fairview Ave E , Slip #O. It has owned moorage – the only one under $600 that owns its own slip.  It is well done, charming, updated, and on a great dock. They are also offering $6000 to go towards your closing costs. It’s a steal…

Pending in the MLS: There are 5 pending Seattle floating homes per the NWMLS.  These Seattle houseboats range in price from $345,000 to $1,300,000.
