June is here and we have a tiny bit of sun, but already it is affecting the Seattle floating homes real estate market. We have had two floating homes go pending already this month. These floating homes are located in both Eastlake and Westlake – one on the 2764 Westlake Ave N dock listed at $399,000 for a 2 bedroom and one on the 2025 Fairview Ave E dock listed at $525,000 for a 1 bedroom.
To put that in perspective, there has been one that has closed in the last 180 days and it was last month – a great little Seattle houseboat on the 2420 Westlake Ave N dock (listed for $530,000 and sold for list price in 14 days. Just a little guy – 1 bedroom and 1 bath).
Inventory of Seattle floating homes for sale remains higher. Despite the fact that there are 12 Seattle floating homes for sale right now (that are listed – we know of a few others that are strictly by appointment and not published in the MLS), many Seattle houseboat buyers are still left feeling like they must compromise or nothing on the market completely fits what they need. Even just one or two more choices could really make the difference so please let us know if you are interested in listing ([email protected]) your Seattle houseboat.
What is for sale?
Current actives range in price from $199,000 for a floating home on a leased dock (not co-op or condo moorage for the house there) to $3,450,000 for a floating marvel complete with parking and about every perk you can imagine except for a more affordable price tag. Both of these are out of the range of what is normal for Seattle floating homes prices right now. The median price for the Seattle floating homes for sale right now is $777,000.
