Happy Spring, Seattle! Seattle Houseboats! I always love Spring because we start to see more Seattle floating homes coming on the real estate market. This has not been the case as of yet, but Molly and I are hopeful that the inventory will increase as the days grow warmer and the sky starts being blue more than grey.
Currently there are three Seattle floating homes for sale in the MLS. They are all on one of the three Log Foundation docks. There are two Seattle houseboats for sale on the 2025 Fairview Ave E Log Foundation Dock. They are priced at $449,000 for a 625 square foot one bedroom floating home ($718.40/sq ft) and $499,950 for a 950 square foot one bedroom floating home ($526.26/sq foot). In addition to these Seattle houseboats, there is a 3 bedroom end of dock Seattle floating home for sale on the 2017 Fairview Ave E Log Foundation Dock. Again End of dock houseboat so price is set at $2,888,000 for 1000 square feet ($2,888/sq ft).
In the MLS, there is one Seattle floating home pending, but Molly and I sold an additional off market Seattle floating home on the Roanoke Reef dock in the last couple of weeks and so we know of two pending overall. The three bedroom over at Portage Bay Place is 1500 square feet and listed for $750,000. It is currently pending in escrow so we will keep you posted on what it sells for. The Roanoke Reef floating home we sold is on the coveted front row of the Roanoke Reef dock located at 10 E Roanoke Street in Seattle’s Eastlake neighborhood. The asking price? $2,150,000. It is scheduled to close soon so we can share additional details after it closes, but are very excited to have been able to facilitate this one.
Overall, it is the same story: Low Inventory. Seattle houseboats are the ultimate in Seattle Waterfront Living℠ so there is always a demand. We have several cash buyers waiting to pounce on the right one, so let us know if you are even thinking about selling. We know our Seattle houseboats buyers well and can tell immediately if your home will be a good fit for them or if you would be better served to put it on the open market. We look forward to hearing from you and hope you have a lovely Spring and Summer!
