Tour Seattle’s Floating Home community: It Happens Every two years…
Seattle Floating homes Tour: The biannual Seattle Floating Homes Association Tour is Sunday September 2011 and I am surprised there are still tickets left! You can grab yours here: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2585184
It’s your chance to tour some of the special Seattle floating homes in Portage Bay. This year the entire tour will be centered around Seattle houseboats in Portage Bay – thirteen of them plus the University Bridge which is a rare treat to peek inside the bridge tender’s work quarters.
According to the latest floating home tour promotion postcard that went out on the event: “This year’s Tour will give visitors the unique chance to visit and discover the colorful history of 13 floating homes hidden along the seldom visited banks of Portage Bay. ”
This tour is something that is very near and dear to our hearts. Molly and I work very hard at every tour doing a variety of jobs. The last two tours, I have put together the actual tickets and promotional posters and I really enjoy reading about the houses. It is an amazing gift to our community that these houseboat home owners are willing to so generously open up their personal spaces so that the public may learn about our Seattle floating community. None of these homes are for sale and this is not a real estate agent’s promotional tour. These are coveted homes that are on display for a limited time during the tour.
Just got word that we are still also looking for volunteers. Here is the message on the latest postcard I put out to the community:
1213 E Shelby Street #13 Current For Sale two beds/ two baths/ 1250 square feet $945,000
Yes; Seattle floating homes do sell year round.
Two words: Indian Summer.
By Molly Cartwright, Seattle Houseboats Expert
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 in Seattle! We thought you’d like a quick snap shot of what the last six months have looked like for Seattle floating home sales.
12 Seattle floating homes sold with a median sold price of $747,500 on a 969 sq ft footprint.
The least expensive Seattle 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. One of our favorite Seattle 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 Seattle Houseboats Experts Molly Cartwright or Courtney Cooper today and let’s talk.
