Seattle Houseboats Floating Home Market Is Heating Up In July!

Looking for your perfect Seattle floating home to live the most amazing lifestyle in this city?seattle floating homes realtors

The Seattle houseboats market is finally heating up and inventory has loosened up enough that buyers are having choices, but at the same time these Seattle floating homes for sale that are on the market are getting more serious looks.  Let’s look at what’s going on.  There are nine Seattle floating homes on the market ranging in price from $850,000 to $3,499,000. The median price for the current offerings is $1,795,000 so there is definitely a shortage of the lower to medium end floating homes for sale.  In fact the only floating home for sale on Lake Union currently that is under a million dollars is not in an owned slip. All other eight floating homes for sale are in a condo or co-op dock and have secured moorage ownership. Five of the nine floating homes for sale are in Eastlake and on Fairview Ave E.  The remaining listings are in Lake Union’s Eastern arm, Portage Bay,  which has become a hot commodity in recent years.
