Seattle Houseboats For Sale & Rent – What’s Been Happening Out There With Us Is Good For YOU

Wow!  After a bit of a lull for Seattle Houseboats, a lot is happening out there on Lake Union!2207 fairview ave e

You may have read recently in Molly’s article about one of the Seattle houseboats for rent.  The interesting thing about that is that I also had that houseboat listed for sale and have had this particular Seattle floating home for sale for a few months now. The very day the seller is about to sign a lease, we got not only one offers, but two – multiple offers after months!  In addition to that, after Molly was able to secure a buyer for the floating home, we received multiple inquiries about it.  It goes back to the thing I have always said about homes that have been on the market and then all of the sudden sell because they get some kind of energy in them and all of the sudden everyone want the house!

So the current status of Seattle floating home for sale on the Flo Villa Dock is now pending inspection.  You can see more details about it here: 2207 Fairview Ave E

seattle floating homes for saleAnother One Goes Pending on Fairview:

You may have read one of our postings about Seattle Houseboats Open Houses. The latest one we did also has sold and is pending in escrow at the moment.  This particular property is toward the end of the dock and quite substantial.  If you are looking at a potential luxury floating home on Lake Union, then this one has all the makings of it in potential.  As is, the houseboat is particularly charming and has one of the largest footprints on the lake.  The upside of this one is what you could do with it if you ever thought about expanding.  One could most likely have a three thousand square foot Seattle floating home with a killer view of Lake Union, the Space needle, and the city skyline. It already has an amazing view as a one level houseboat and a great reinforced new roof and stairs for a rooftop deck. This one is a rarity and it has been a pleasure representing it.

Molly was able to help the buyers get all of their float and interior inspections done and together we have been able to give them professional referrals for everything form insurance providers to mortgage lenders. We have coordinated escrow and made this a carefree transaction for both buyer and seller. It is one of the reasons we work so well together and make a great team!  You can read more about this Seattle houseboat for sale here: 2031 Fairview Ave E

We are so excited to finish the end of the year this way, but don’t want to stop!  There are a lot more buyers out there looking for a Seattle floating home and as a result we want more Seattle houseboats to sell!  You can see all Seattle floating homes for sale and Seattle houseboats for sale on our corporate site. Contact us please if you are interested in buying or selling houseboats. Thank you, Courtney.  courtney@cooperjacobs.com or call or text meat 206.850.8841

Seattle Floating Homes: Private, Convenient, Affordable.

2331 #CRooftop04Whether you are the first or the last Seattle floating home on the dock, you are setting yourself up for success and happiness. The first floating home on the dock translates into privacy.  You have one (or sometimes two) less neighbors on either side.  Loading or unloading a car makes it more convenient.  Living close to shore also means less walking down a dock in the rain or wind with  a hand full of groceries.

It’s also affordable.  End of dock homes fetch around $1M + price tags while an inside slip is much more affordable yet still the same fantastic lifestyle.  Roof top views, moorage for a craft, outside decks – all features or attainable with inside slips.

If you’ve ever thought about owning a floating home because you love the peacefulness of the water then now is the time!  Two beautiful Seattle floating homes for sale with all the above qualities. Financing available if you qualify.  Ask us about lender options.
