When people are looking at Seattle floating homes, they almost always want to know about the end of the dock moorages. The Dox dock has two docks so there are four end of dock locations and lots of floating homes toward the end. If you can find a floating home on this dock community, it offers stunning panoramic views of Lake Union, from the Seattle skyline to Gasworks Park – if it has good dock position.
Located in a charming floating home neighborhood, this floating home dock features a clean, well-planned open design and remarkable views. This dock is a Coop moorage & there is room for boats on some slip.
Lake Union is your own private “swimming pool”

Houseboats For Sale In Seattle Soon To Be listed In The NWMLS Again
If you have been looking at Seattle houseboats for sale, then you know that some are in the MLS and some are not. As of July 24th, the NWMLS will be having more than before listed under style 24. Here is the latest according to the email I just received from the MLS:
As you probably know, effective July 24th, RCW 18.85 will be revised to allow real estate brokers to list and sell a “floating on-water residence, as defined in RCW 90.58.270.” In addition, RCW 88.02 will be revised to allow real estate brokers to list and sell floating on-water residences without being licensed as a vessel dealer.
RCW 90.58.270(6)(d) defines a floating on-water residence as “any floating structure other than a floating home, as defined under subsection (5) of this section, that: (i) Is designed or used primarily as a residence on the water and has detachable utilities; and (ii) whose owner or primary occupant has held an ownership interest in space in a marina, or has held a lease or sublease to use space in a marina, since a date prior to July 1, 2014.”
On July 24th, NWMLS will revise Style Code 24 from “Floating Home” to “Floating Home/On-Water RES.” The revision will automatically update the style code on floating home listings and doesn’t require any action from the listing broker.
Like with other listings, NWMLS will rely upon the listing firm to determine if a certain property is eligible to be listed. We will address questions/complaints with listings on a case-by-case basis.
The City of Seattle has a verification process for floating on-water residences. You can note in the listing that property has been verified by the City as a floating on-water residence or upload the verification as an attached document to the listing. You may want to do this so that other brokers know that the property has been verified by the City, however, the verification is not required by NWMLS.

Seattle Houseboats On Lake Union – Inventory Is Afloat!
Seattle Is Afloat! There are several pending Seattle houseboats in the MLS as well, but I wanted to go ahead and get some basic info about what is available for sale on Lake Union right now. There are FIVE ACTIVE Seattle floating homes for sale currently in the NWMLS. There are also a couple Seattle houseboats for rent if you are interested in those so please let us know.
A quick note about Lake Union water homes definitions… (This post is about justSEATTLE FLOATING HOMES for sale. The term “Seattle houseboats” is an umbrella term which covers floating homes, vessels, barges, and now Seattle floating on-water residences. It has recently become unnecessarily more intricate than it ever needed to be, but it is what it is and we would be happy to help clarify it for you. Historically, though, Seattlelites refer to all forms of these types of floating abodes as “Seattle Houseboats“.)
OK, back to the Lake Union news! There are five Seattle floating homes that are for sale currently. They range in price from $395,000 for a 1 bedroom in Portage Bay to $1,595,000 for a 2 bedroom floating gem in the prestigious Mallard Cove floating homes community in Eastlake. The median list price of these incredible Lake Union floating residences is $948,000 which also happens to be the list price of our Westlake floating home for sale right now. There are two Eastlake houseboats for sale in this mix, two in Portage Bay, and one in Westlake. All three Lake Union houseboats communities offer different Seattle Waterfront Living℠ styles and each one is unique in character and charm. The average days on market is 21 days currently and the average dollar per square foot is $802.91 per square foot. Square footage on floating home docks is not a reliable source of value always because there are so many structures of ownership to take into account. Each Seattle floating home is different and there are also no two docks alike on Lake Union.
