Hello! Seattle Floating Homes and Seattle Houseboats Neighbors! Hoping this finds you well in the new year! My family and I are very grateful to have you as neighbors. I greatly appreciate that you keep choosing me when it comes time to buy or sell your homes. It is truly my honor.
Besides selling a lot of Seattle houseboats and floating homes, there were a few big life changes in 2022!
Married! You may have seen my name change on the signs: Courtney Cooper -> Courtney Cooper Neese. At age 50, my prince charming finally found me. He came in the form of a tall and handsome home inspector named Joe who sponsored a top 20% real estate broker lunch, that I was featured at. And.. the good news: he loves floating homes, too.
Joe came with a spunky and beautiful daughter so London and I gained not just one family member, but two!
Lastly, My daughter got married, too! On the last day of the year, we hiked in the snow and got to experience a beautiful fairytale wedding that only Madison could have come up with. My new son in law is very special.
This floating community is like no other! While many admire us from the outside, one really does have to live here to truly understand our various intricacies! Each dock is so different and each geographic section of our community is different as well, but we all exhibit the same fortitude no matter which side of the lake we are on. I long admired Seattle’s floating homes community and thought I understood it before I lived here, but it wasn’t until I was highly involved and living in it that a true understanding was born. Very grateful to have had the chance to work with incredible buyer and seller clients through all this. It’s more about you rather than the numbers. Thank you for always wrapping your arms around me.
Seattle houseboats come in many different shapes and sizes and you can find them in various spots along the shores of Lake Union and Portage Bay, but we love it when we are able to represent a true legacy floating home on the lake.

Welcome to the 2420 Cooperative Seattle Floating Homes Dock
2420 Westlake Avenue North #8 Seattle, Washington 98109
You should always start with the float on a Seattle floating home, but most people start with the house itself to make sure it checks all the Seattle houseboats boxes. Each one of these is so very different, but it is important that once you identify the perfect Lake Union floating home that works for your living style, then you go right to the float. The true value in Seattle floating homes in across Lake Union and Lake Union’s eastern arm Portage Bay is the slip dimensions. The slip sizes for any given slip were largely determined and set in stone across coop docks by looking at any existing structures that occupied the slips at the time that the dock was converted to a coop. These dimensions were then recorded and grandfathered in. Many of them exceed the limit of brand new homes allowed on the lake so slips with footprints larger than 1200 square feet are especially valuable.
Length: 37.4ft Width: 30.8 ft
Water Depth: 45ft with no obstructions.
Stringers: 11 pressure treated stringers running east to west. Decks The front deck is constructed of treated 2×6 surface boards and 4×6 joints.
Log pack. Beneath the stringers are 9 old growth logs that run east to west. They provide both structure and flotation for the home. They are in a stable configuration, anchored securely with stringers pins.
Early 1900’s year built | 2 beds | 1 Bath | Approximately 700 sq ft
Hardwoods | wrap around deck | sunroom | boat moorage
$500 Home Owner Dues include: dock water, sewer, garbage. Dock maintenance, DNR lease, pay off for 8 slip marina, and floating home moorage real estate taxes
Personal property tax (paid biannual or annually) is $1,200
8 slip marina owned by 2420 Cooperative anticipated paid off by December 2018
Laundry and shower facility at the head of the dock is for the slip tenants.

New steel moorage arms in 2018.
From Our Lovely Seattle Floating Home Sellers:
Things We Love About Living Here
We love to hop on our bikes and cruise along the newer Westlake bike trail to Fremont. We would sometimes attach our pet bike carrier since our favorite bar in Fremont Norm’s on 36th Ave allows dogs inside!
We walk out our sliding glass door and hop on our Paddleboards and other water toys to unwind after a long working day. However our favorite time is in the early morning hours when the city is still sleeping. SUP yoga anyone?
We love to watch the beautiful yachts cruise into the Westlake marinas and play a game of how this billionaire made their profits! Plus we like the privacy of living next to a quiet marina instead of a house around every corner.
Nature is everywhere we look and our favorite is to see the Blue Heron hunt for its food right outside our door.
We love to hear the sounds of seaplanes in the distance. The next time we want to go to the San Juans, we can kayak to Kenmore Air to catch a ride.
The Floating Home Association (FHA) is an awesome community that is always bringing the floating home community together. Sometimes it’s a dock party (Docktoberfest) or it’s an informative annual meeting (each April) to discuss how we can continue to preserve and improve our lifestyle.
Above all, we love to tell people (when asked) that we live in a houseboat or floating home. It never fails to bring a slew of questions about what it’s like and that they’ve always wanted to do the same thing.
Want to see this one? Call/Text Courtney Cooper 206-850-8841 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org We are Seattle Floating Homes Experts and happy to help you with this special kind of Seattle home.
Seattle Floating Homes – It Comes Down To The Love Of Water
The last two days have been spent well out of my comfort zone being interviewed and filmed by a crew from CNN. Anyone who knows me knows how very out of character that is for me. I say no to every filming request that we get from shows like Househunters, Tiny Houses, etc. We greatly respect the privacy of the Seattle Houseboats community and want to protect this coveted lifestyle. I was happy to step out of my personal norm and do this because I wanted to show off our floating homes community and our beautiful city on a grander scale. We are fresh off of the 2018 Seattle Floating Homes tour and I have an ever growing love for this historic neighborhood in which I call home.
When I got the call to talk about Seattle floating homes by an extremely respected network, I agreed. We planned a modest boat ride around the lake so that I could show off the various floating home communities that make up our overall houseboats neighborhood. As luck would have it, my Duffy electric boat decided to be moody the day before they were set to visit, so I called upon one of my personal heroes Steve Brown whom I work with at Keller Williams North Seattle. He didn’t hesitate to come to my rescue and his beautiful boat is so much better!!! Steve dropped his entire day and toured the film crew around in style around the lake while I was interviewed on the bow of his boat like I was cruising the riviera.
As I was interviewed about the various aspects of our community and what it was like to live on a floating home, I was reminded of why I live on one. It’s all about the water for me. I love the reflections of it on my ceiling and the sound of it as the waves come in and are dispersed gently over the logs that make up my float pack. I love the rain pouring on the roof and lake around me. It was fun to see how excited the camera crew got about the littlest things around our homes. The gardens on the docks and other creative artwork here and there added such vibrancy to the story they were trying to tell. Such an outstanding community of neighbors that care about each other and all share the common bond of loving the water.
As newer folks move in and others move off the dock, the character and mood changes at times, but overall the spirit stays the same. I was asked a lot about gentrification of the neighborhood and how that had affected the docks, but it all keeps going back to the common bond that we all share – old or young, rich or poor. We all love the water. It was such a pleasure to show off our incredible neighborhood! I got to tour them through our listings, too!
If you are interested in seeing the floating homes that they toured or anything on the market, please let us know. We are happy to show you some great spots. I can’t guarantee that I can get Captain Steve back, but should have the Duffy up and rolling again soon! Please feel free to call/text us at 206-850-8841 Currently there are 12 floating homes on the market which range in list price from $599,000 to $3,700,000. There is literally something for everyone if you want to be one of the lucky roughly 517 who live in a floating home on the lake.

Looking for your perfect Seattle floating home to live the most amazing lifestyle in this city?
The Seattle houseboats market is finally heating up and inventory has loosened up enough that buyers are having choices, but at the same time these Seattle floating homes for sale that are on the market are getting more serious looks. Let’s look at what’s going on. There are nine Seattle floating homes on the market ranging in price from $850,000 to $3,499,000. The median price for the current offerings is $1,795,000 so there is definitely a shortage of the lower to medium end floating homes for sale. In fact the only floating home for sale on Lake Union currently that is under a million dollars is not in an owned slip. All other eight floating homes for sale are in a condo or co-op dock and have secured moorage ownership. Five of the nine floating homes for sale are in Eastlake and on Fairview Ave E. The remaining listings are in Lake Union’s Eastern arm, Portage Bay, which has become a hot commodity in recent years.

Why You Should Sell Your Seattle Floating Home Right Now
Pending in Escrow with multiple offers!
When I have conversations with people interested in selling their Seattle homes I always get an interesting array of responses, but in the last week alone three property owners have told me that they want to wait until spring to sell their home. Most years for us the winter is one of my busier times in Seattle real estate overall and sometimes even more busy on the lake! So the idea that someone would think the spring time could be better and want to wait to list their home doesn’t make sense to me. My favorite response when talking to a homeowner about selling their home in the so called “off season” is something along the lines of not understanding why it would be smart to sell their home in “the dead of winter”.
Five reasons why you should sell your floating home now if you are thinking about selling in spring:
You know how much your home is worth now. We I have set record after record this year on various docks around Lake Union. The Seattle Houseboats world is typically a strong market anyway (except ironically slows down in August). The floating homes sales only slightly slowed down during the last real estate down turn, but there are no guarantees in this real estate game except that it is in fact a cyclical business. There are always ups and downs in the market and you won’t always see a shifting market before it happens.
There are fewer competing floating homes for sale. Fortunately for you, the holidays and the overshadowing belief that one should wait until spring will keep your competition at bay. In addition, We have sold most of the inventory so you really only have a couple floating homes that the buyer pool is looking at. Fewer competing homes on the market means more competing buyers and in this case – serious buyers – which brings me to #3.
Real Floating home buyers: The ones who are out there on the lake in the freezing cold and “dead of winter” are the ones that are definitely serious. This is not the warm season of “looky loos” and even the classic “nosy neighbors” tend to not want to venture out into the cold of the Pacific Northwest to check out the digs next door. This is never more truer than with floating homes. No one wants to risk their life walking down the slippery dock with the wind whipping up from below.
Statistics from the National Association Of Realtors measured by keyboxes are showing that the number of those serious buyers is high right now. While this has not historically mattered as much to the typical floating home buyer, interest in our unique properties has increased as people look to us as an alternative housing solution which is ironically more affordable these days.
The political climate is volatile with regards to many facets of life and that affects real estate. Uncertainty can cause the real estate market to slow down and giant looming tax changes could also make buyers reconsider future purchases. Seattle floating homes tend to be more of an emotional buy than land homes are and emotions usually run high over politics.
Are you interested in learning more about what your Seattle floating home might be worth today?
We are happy to provide you with a CMA to show you how much your home is worth now. We can get you pointers on small or large things to do to get your home ready for the market and we can also tell you what it is worth as is. We can tell you roughly what your buyer pool looks like today as well so that you can decide if you want to go ahead and take the “polar plunge” into selling your Lake Union floating home this winter.

Seattle Houseboats For Sale: Just SOLD in Eastlake!
Seattle Houseboats Just Sold: Let’s look at 2019 Fairview Ave E in Lake Union’s Eastlake neighborhood
This particular Seattle floating home has a special place in our hearts due to its sentimental background. Though not as famous as its Sleepless in Seattle cousin across Lake Union, this Seattle houseboat is perhaps just as iconic! Located on one of Eastlake’s longest running and most organized cooperative dock, The Log Foundation, this 1930 floating home has had lots and lots of action – even as it was moored in one place and not moving. It was owned by a very longtime and loved Seattle houseboats resident and the home was practically a floating dance hall in its day. We have recently nicknamed the home “Art” after its previous owner and look forward to seeing the new owners enjoy it as much as he reportedly did. There are lots of stories across the lake about the parties that almost always broke out into full on dance soirees and you can tell just by walking into this houseboat that it has had a happy life. We are so thrilled to see it have a loving new chapter.
A little more about this special home…..
So back to the sale itself – Seattle houseboats for sale always are exciting, but closing one is also a cause for celebration. Congratulations on doing such a great job getting it sold. It closed in escrow on 10/13/2015 at a final sales price of $677,500. The floating home has two bedrooms and is 1300 square feet. It has a rather large float for its size and great dock position. It also is well oriented to the lake which is something you don’t always get. Moorage for a recreational boat is possible alongside the home with the permission of the co-op. It also had extra spaces which could function as an office or another nonconforming bedroom. The home is all one level and has the most charming curved ceilings. I was always very taken in with the large open living space and the beautiful spaces throughout. It never felt like a two bedroom home – more like a home with all kinds of possibilities in every corner. As I write this, I personally regret not buying it myself – such a wonderful place with great energy, but alas, there will be other Seattle houseboats for sale and each one is unique and special.
Please call us if you are interested in learning more about Seattle houseboats for sale – We look forward to helping you buy or sell your next Seattle houseboat, whether it is a Seattle floating home, a house barge, or a floating on-water residence. We are excited to help you learn about the lovely Lake Union as well as Seattle Houseboat Living℠.

Seattle Houseboats History Has A “Colorful” Background & Entrepreneurial Spirit Transcends Time…
To look at all the colorful and cheery Lake Union floating homes today is to never know how truly Seattle houseboats history is. Seattle floating homes are a living and evolving part of Seattle’s history. From their humble beginnings over a hundred years ago as floating shanties compiled of pillaged lumber, it is amazing to see that some sell for over $3 Million dollars in today’s real estate market.
Seattle houseboats were originally built in two different ways. Either the worker would utilize his commuting work boat and build living quarters above it, or they would gather “loose” logs and raft them together to build a completely free floating structure. It was an inexpensive way of living and was tax free on top of it.

At the peak, the Seattle floating homes community was as large as two thousand houseboats lining the shores of the city in various locations which even included Madison Park in Lake Washington. The residents of the surrounding Seattle neighborhoods reportedly snubbed them and looked down at this way of life. They apparently felt that it was beneath their standards and so began the struggle of Seattle houseboats to Stay Afloat In Seattle™. Today there are around 500 Seattle floating homes and probably another two or three hundred liveaboards that are officially newly categorized as Seattle Floating On-Water Residences (final count once all have registered themselves in the latest legislation). The latest Seattle floating home dock was a new construction floating home development called Ward’s Cove. Very specific requirements need to be in place in order to develop new construction Seattle floating homes, so it is next to impossible to do so.
If The City Historically Wanted Them Gone, Why Did They Allow Docks To Begin With?
Here is a view towards Downtown from the South slope of Denny Hill in 1886 (photo courtesy of Seattle Municipal Archives Item # 2869)
The short answer is The University of Washington. Wait. What? The long answer is that Seattle has a very long history of making some incredibly hairbrained decisions as far as infrastructure goes. A perfect example (and my apologies for going off subject here for a minute, but….) The Denny Regrade: The hill is too big? Scrape it into the Puget Sound.In 1900, the city decided to basically eliminate a whole hill which covered 62 city blocks. Denny Hill was a significantly beautiful hill in Seattle. It had a gorgeous crowned jewel of a hotel atop it that was so grand that even President Theodore Roosevelt stayed there! It had an old cemetery and a beautiful park on it with expansivel views in all directions. In all, they removed a reported six million cubic yards of earth.
Connecting the dots: What does this all have to do with Seattle houseboats and The University of Washington? Let’s go backwards. The modern day campus of The University of Washington was largely laid out and shaped by The Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition of 1909. In 1907 the city of Seattle platted and sold the submerged “parcels” in Lake Union to the adjacent waterfront property land owners. This enabled docks to be built and Seattle houseboats to be moored to them. According to The Lake Union Mail on an article about Submerged Parcels Park on the Cheshiahud Loop, “The “Lake Union Shore Lands” were created in 1907 as a funding mechanism for the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition (S.B. #101). Water extending from shore approximately one block (roughly 400 feet) was platted as buildable land, then sold. These parcels didn’t sink, they started sunk. And they were considered valuable.” Now you know how a World’s Fair, Denny Hill, The University of Washington, and Seattle Houseboats are related.

More Shady Past on The Lake: Life Afloat In Seattle℠: You Want To Stay Dry, Except When It Comes To Your Drink…..
Creativity has always been a strong characteristic of the Seattle floating homes community. This was never so true as during the prohibition era. According to the 1996 article by Sharon Boswell in The Seattle Times, “But for those who couldn’t afford the pleasures of Doc’s or one of the hundreds of other boozy night spots and music clubs along Jackson Street, in Belltown or even on Lake Union houseboats, there was always a bottle of locally produced bootleg available to consume in the privacy of home.” If floating homes seem like an unlikely place to get your alcohol fix then consider thatIn his highly acclaimed book,“Seattle’s Unsinkable Houseboats”, Howard Droker tells the story of a very enterprising entrepreneur who along with the cedar bark he sold off his boat, also sold smuggled Canadian liquor.
It’s absolutely true. If you take a peek under carpets of older floating homes you will see the leftover evidence of the Prohibition era and how crafty houseboaters were able to not stay dry. Many of them have hidden trap doors under the floor that were used for storing alcohol. At one point in time there were regular “rum run” routes such as the one Droker writes about which would make their rounds delivering to Lake Union floating homes. These booze hatches were ingenious and stored between the floating logs with a wire cage so that the waters of the lake itself could keep the liquor cold and well hidden. According to HistoryLink.org, The Seattle Times noted at one point that in regard to those wild times, “Some of the stories behind the houseboat population are as colorful as anything that ever came out of Seattle’s history, but respect for another’s privacy and past is an unspoken code on the lake.”
This historic Seattle houseboat was once used as a floating dance hall. It is for sale today for $697,000. Listed by Cooper Jacobs Real Estate.
Seattle Houseboats Are Still Afloat & Strong Today
Go experience their magic – Take a kayak tour through Lake Union and Portage Bay where you will find what is left of the Seattle floating homes community. Take a walk around Lake Union on the Cheshiahud Loop. Lake Union is the very heart of the city. Try and imagine the colorful past as you look at the beauty and creativeness which is so abundant today. This is a living and breathing Seattle neighborhood, but also a significant part of Northwest history. It is as vibrant as the wonderful people who live in it. I am so thankful to have known so many of them and appreciate how they have enriched my life so far. Please also take a minute and donate to the Seattle Floating Homes Association if you can.
