Here we are 8/31/2011. Summer is pretty much over although it finally feels like we are getting some warmer weather here and there. Seattle houseboats are still well into their prime season and the choices afloat on Lake Union are vast. If you are interested in buying a Seattle houseboat, now is a great time to look. I actually haven’t seen so many choices in the last few years at one time – and they are in all price ranges.
Current offerings range from $219,950 for a little guy on Boyer Ave E to $1,395,000 for one of the Roanoke Reef houseboats. There are 16 Seattle floating homes on the market right now with a median price of $650,000. You can find these Seattle houseboats on Lake Union docks in Eastlake, Westlake, and Portage Bay. There are leased and owned moorage options. Let us know if you are curious about what might be the best fit for you.
