We have been discovered! Again! Of course we all know that living in one of the 520 Seattle floating homes is the very coolest way to live! It seems that our community is more sought after than ever currently as we experience multiple offers and shorter market times. We do find that when inventory on land decreases, floating homes are a creative no brainer that a buyer may not have thought of before. This has been going on for years.
Breaking Records And Raising The Bar
Last year alone, we had an unprecedented amount of record breaking multi million dollar Seattle floating home sales – each one higher than the last. Molly and I represented Seattle floating home buyers and sellers in some of these and we are so pleased that our lake homes are rising in value, even breaking into the $4M price point in 2020!!! The highest Seattle floating home sale occurred in 2020 with an end of dock floating home on The Lake Union Dock in Eastlake. It closed off market and was a FSBO (for sale by owner) and closed at $4,500,000. No brokers represented either party in the sale of 2031 Fairview Ave E #H.
Molly and I always make sure to report even these off market sales in our updates because they are not in the MLS for the public to be able to use for a comp or verify facts. We will always represent them as accurately as possible and won’t take credit for sales we don’t make. It is possible to sell your floating home without a broker, though obviously I don’t advise it. We want you to have all the correct information when making a decision about listing your floating home. It’s an important decision to make.
Just in the last couple weeks alone, Molly and I have had two quick cash floating home closings, received THREE offers on our $2.1M Portage Bay floating home, and with our help, our buyer prevailed last night, too!!! We were able to secure a purchase for an adorable A-frame floating home in Eastlake on the Flo Villa dock. There were three other offers, but our buyer trusted our experience and market share on the lake and took our advice. We are so happy for our buyer and we adore helping people make their dreams come true.
