Houseboats Living: A Few Seattle Floating Homes Of Note

Portage Bay Floating Homes ViewSeattle Houseboats Market Notes –

Well, first of all, I wanted to congratulate our buyers who closed on their new Seattle floating home in Eastlake a couple days ago.  The market for Seattle floating homes is heated so this was a huge accomplishment.   It is still marked as “Pending” in the MLS as of this moment, but as soon as the listing agent switches it to “Sold” you will see that the market was fiercely competition it.  This Eastlake floating home was listed for $1,000,000.  Completely redone down to the float, this beautiful Seattle floating home had a lot to offer and this was evidenced by the bidding war it achieved both before the offer deadline and then after the deadline, further. In fact, after we had secured it for our buyers, additional buyer interest came in.

This Seattle floating home is located on a condo dock – The Phoenix Dock, which if you read the late  Jeri Callahan’s (The self proclaimed “houseboat lady”) book “Staying Afloat”, you can read about the Phoenix dock and how it actually originated in Westlake and was towed over to Eastlake.  It is quite a charming dock in Eastlake. Final price? $1,115,000 which ended up being a steal based on the activity the home received both before and after our offer was signed.

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!
