Seattle Floating Homes For Sale And What’s Happening With The Market
School is officially in session today so I am calling this the end of summer Seattle floating homes market report. A lot has happened this summer, but the market overall had a very slow start. I think I had mentioned this several times in previous articles I have written. It seems like anything under about $800-900,000 sells somewhat quickly and anything up to $2.5 million is not selling as fast. Then there is a micro market for floating homes in the $3 million dollar range that are selling quicker than expected. There isn’t a lot of rhyme or reason to who will be in the buyer pool for a floating home at any given time so making sure that you are staying on top of the market is the best course of action.
There are a lot of things that have been changing in the Seattle houseboats world overall, so just keep asking questions if you are wondering where you stand compared to the market. For Molly and me, we have been most successful by keeping an open dialog about what is happening in the market – whether good or bad pricing wise. Our efforts have been on marketing, getting the word out, education regarding our community, and also just keep sellers on course with pricing.
Many higher end Eastlake floating homes are coming on the market as a result of recent success in the three million dollar and up range. Many lower end floating homes are experiencing longer market times. Feel free to call us if you have questions: Courtney 206-850-8841/ Molly 206-841-6800
