Seattle Floating Homes For Sale: Houseboats Inventory Movement

Seattle Houseboats On Lake Union  – Inventory Is Afloat!seattle floating home dining room

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 just SEATTLE 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“.)

seattle houseboats for sale in westlakeOK, 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 incedible 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.
