Why You Need The Security Of OWNED Moorage Vs. A Rented Slip
Don’t buy a floating home in a rented slip when there are Seattle floating homes for sale with the security of an owned slip!!! Why on Earth would you want your investment to not be secure? The city of Seattle has been dwindling down the Seattle floating community for a hundred years with regular new ordinances and it is more important now than ever to make sure that you are purchasing a floating home that is either on a fee simple dock, a condominium dock, or a co-op dock. Leased slips are not secure and when you go to sell it, you will have trouble finding buyers who can obtain financing. The few lenders who lend on Seattle floating homes don’t like to do it on leased docks unless there is a long term lease in place. Can the seller obtain owned moorage from their landlord? Ask them!
Here is an example of a Seattle floating home for sale that is in its secure OWNED slip: (UPDATE: THIS SEATTLE HOUSEBOAT IS NOT FOR SALE ANYMORE)
