Current Seattle Houseboats For Sale

Well the NWMLS has really gone a little haywire with the changeover to the new Matrix software. As a result, Seattle houseboats for sale are not being updated correctly in the MLS or any of the sites that the listings feed to. Many are still showing without pictures to the public sites even though many professional pictures have been loaded in to the MLS. The glitch should be resolved soon, but in the mean time, I wanted to make sure and get some complete and current data out there for what is available in the Seattle Floating Homes market.

Eastlake, Westlake, Northlake, and Portage Bay Floating Homes For Sale

On The Dox dock – a 2 bedroom 1 bath with an astounding 1450 square feet and soaring ceilings for only $650,000

The Log Foundation – an amazing 1 bedroom floating home with HUGE spaces and a great roof top spot to perch over Lake Union 936 sq ft $749,000
