Seattle Floating Homes: Less Than $350,000 For This One!

Seattle Floating Homes: Interested in seeing what life is like on a Seattle floating home, but afraid of all the expenses? This is the very cheapest floating home on Lake Union! It is a great houseboat and has the ability for future potential because you can go up a level and get some great views!

The float size is a pretty good size at over 32 feet by 23 feet according to the last dive report and all systems are in good condition and ready for a new owner. The dues are low and cover many expenses including the moorage for the floating home, your portion of the real estate taxes for the dock, water, garbage, and sewer. The property taxes for the home itself are also affordable – who says living in a Seattle houseboat has to be expensive?

Throw your kayak or canoe in the lake and enjoy all that Seattle’s best location has to offer! This is a perfect condo alternative with huge investment potential for your future on this well managed and nicely maintained cooperatively owned dock. Want to see how this compares to other Seattle Houseboats for sale on Lake Union? Current Seattle floating homes listings start in the mid $700,000 range. This is a huge opportunity! Seller willing to put in new carpet so hurry and pick your own colors! Listing agent also willing to contribute $5000 towards your closing costs if you use one of our preferred buyers’ agents – contact realestate@CooperJacobs for additional details on the that credit.

Seattle Houseboats: Floating Homes Are Few And Far Between

Seattle Houseboats:  Floating Homes Are Few And Far Between!  The inventory right now in Seattle floating homes is pretty much non-existent.  Seattle houseboat market update:

Seattle Floating Homes for sale: Right now there are only a couple Seattle floating homes for sale – one of them is on Portage Bay and offers some additional moorage for income potential and the other is a lovely little historical gem that we listed last week.  List range is from $365,500 to $2,200,000.  There was another in Roanoke Reef but it is pending inspection at the moment and falls within that same range of list price.

The real problem right now for potential houseboat buyers is that there is no inventory.  We have the high and the low end represented in this batch, but there are a real lack of Seattle floating homes in the $550,000 to $950,000 range which is where I see a lot of the demand. Obviously getting your foot into the door on a Seattle houseboat priced at $365,500 is also pretty desire able which is why we have had a lot of attention and activity at the home we have listed at 2764 Westlake Ave N!

Other Seattle Houseboats for sale (vessels, barges):

Vessels and barges are lower priced and boats rather than real estate so they fall into a completely different category of Seattle houseboat than the floating homes do.  Current listings for these other types of Seattle houseboats or liveaboards range from $110,000 all the way up to $385,000 and $395,000 with 7 or 8 available to choose from at the moment.

Recent Seattle houseboats that have sold or are pending:

Roanoke Reef has one pending sale and there is also a smaller floating home pending on Portage Bay.  In the last 6 months there have been 11 closed Seattle floating homes sales and 3 closed vessel sales. Stat Averages for these are as follows:  $765,929 listing price, 1645  square feet, 140 days on market, $709,552 average selling price.
