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!

Seattle Floating Homes Tour: Sept 11 2016

Tour Seattle’s Floating Home community:  It Happens Every two years…Peaceful Portage Bay

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:

Sept. 11, 2016 noon – 5 p.m.
Volunteers needed!
