Seattle Houseboats: Floating Homes Are Few And Far Between

Seattle Houseboats:  Floating Homes Are Few And Far Between!  The inventory right now in Seattle floating homes is pretty much non-existent.  Seattle houseboat market update:

Seattle Floating Homes for sale: Right now there are only a couple Seattle floating homes for sale – one of them is on Portage Bay and offers some additional moorage for income potential and the other is a lovely little historical gem that we listed last week.  List range is from $365,500 to $2,200,000.  There was another in Roanoke Reef but it is pending inspection at the moment and falls within that same range of list price.

The real problem right now for potential houseboat buyers is that there is no inventory.  We have the high and the low end represented in this batch, but there are a real lack of Seattle floating homes in the $550,000 to $950,000 range which is where I see a lot of the demand. Obviously getting your foot into the door on a Seattle houseboat priced at $365,500 is also pretty desire able which is why we have had a lot of attention and activity at the home we have listed at 2764 Westlake Ave N!

Other Seattle Houseboats for sale (vessels, barges):

Vessels and barges are lower priced and boats rather than real estate so they fall into a completely different category of Seattle houseboat than the floating homes do.  Current listings for these other types of Seattle houseboats or liveaboards range from $110,000 all the way up to $385,000 and $395,000 with 7 or 8 available to choose from at the moment.

Recent Seattle houseboats that have sold or are pending:

Roanoke Reef has one pending sale and there is also a smaller floating home pending on Portage Bay.  In the last 6 months there have been 11 closed Seattle floating homes sales and 3 closed vessel sales. Stat Averages for these are as follows:  $765,929 listing price, 1645  square feet, 140 days on market, $709,552 average selling price.

Seattle houseboat Real Estate Market 2010 Summary:

Seattle houseboats are in demand! If you have been thinking about selling your Seattle floating home, then right would be PERFECT.  There is little or no competition and the floating home market has for the most part not been seriously impacted by the rest of the Seattle real estate market.

Roanoke Reef Floating Homes: Primo Seattle Houseboats

Roanoke Reef Floating Homes:  Primo Seattle Houseboats – out in the rain today previewing a couple Roanoke Reef houseboats on the market and also meeting an appraiser.  By the end of the afternoon, I was soaked!

Roanoke Reef is a great Seattle houseboat community and the floating homes here are top of the line for size and amenities – Buying a Seattle floating home in this Eastlake community means buying via condo ownership for the dock with your own submerged land (fee simple ownership).  It also means you get a gated entrance and parking.

Roanoke Reef floating homes have a lot to offer.  The dock is well maintained and all the homes are newer than other historical houseboat docks.
