Getting it ready for the houseboat market:  One component of a quick sale is proper preparation.  This requires a broker who specializes in not only floating homes, but innovative and creative marketing that is unique when compared to other brokers.  Courtney Cooper with help from Molly Cartwright initially listed the floating home located at 2031 Fairview Ave E (Houseboat # E) and the recipe for success was put in place which included a variety of ingredients.

 From the listing brokers:

A luxury home Stager was brought in and  a professional photographer lined up.  A housekeeper contributed to the process as well.  Cooper Jacobs Real Estate already owns the domain for this dock address (as well as others around the lake) so setting up a website that specializes in the listings that they represent on these docks is an extremely useful tool for consumers when looking for floating homes.  We have other sites that we feature our listings on as well as the address site including CooperJacobs.com. SeattleAfloat.com, and many more.  Your Seattle floating home will be found by anyone looking.  In fact, they can’t avoid finding it.
