Aaaah And Then Today Happened: Life Afloat In Seattle

Seattle Floating Homes – Life Afloat in Seattle

Today Molly said to me, “You are lucky!  You are already on the lake.  Everyone elSeattle floating homesse is trying to get to the water.”  Well, isn’t that the point?

There is something indescribable about actually living on the water. Days like today definitely make the rain and the cold and the long walks down the dock in said rain and cold worth it, but I also like the rain and the cold. Even in the dead of winter there is a beautiful amount of light that reflects off the water and dances on my ceiling. The lapping waves are smaller and fewer, but the sound is priceless.  Every morning the seaplanes fly over me in Portage Bay on their way from Kenmore to Westlake and every evening they fly back to Kenmore in a well timed and executed succession.

Currently, you can purchase at least four Seattle floating homes for sale that are listed in the NWMLS and there are a handful of others that will certainly change hands in coming months.  Let us know what you are looking for and we will keep you in the loop as they become available. houseboats@cooperjacobs.com  The floating homes for sale in the MLS range in price from a Portage Bay floating home with leased moorage for $749,000 to another Seattle floating home in Portage Bay with owned moorage for $1,400,000.  Three out of four of these Seattle houseboats are in Portage Bay with the other floating home for sale in Eastlake looking at multiple offers today (at this very moment as I type actually since we have a client in the running for it hopefully).

In the last 60 days four Seattle floating homes for sale have closed.  Molly and I have been at least partially responsible for three of the four of these Seattle houseboats sold. Here are listing sheets with more details for the ones that have closed in escrow:  Seattle houseboats that have sold – floating homes
