Seattle Houseboats: What A Difference A Few Weeks Makes In The Floating Home World!

Seattle Houseboats:  What A Difference A Few Weeks Makes In The Floating Home World!

Seattle houseboats for sale:  Of the five floating homes available for sale, here is the info:  These range in price from $550,000 to $1,890,000 with a median list price of $1,100,000.  Of these, my favorite is 2017 Fairview Ave E , Slip #O. It has owned moorage – the only one under $600 that owns its own slip.  It is well done, charming, updated, and on a great dock. They are also offering $6000 to go towards your closing costs. It’s a steal…

Pending in the MLS: There are 5 pending Seattle floating homes per the NWMLS.  These Seattle houseboats range in price from $345,000 to $1,300,000.

Seattle Houseboats: Catching Up With The Seattle Floating Homes Market Sept 2014

Summary:  Great Choices Available unless you want The Sleepless In Seattle Houseboat.june2010b 275

All year long, the story has been low inventory, low inventory, low inventory.  Now we have inventory.  Typically August is pretty quiet for Seattle houseboats sales, so it was no surprise to see that August was slow again. The real surprise, though, was the whole new crop of Seattle floating homes listings that have come on the market.  We have some really cool choices right now which span into every price range.

The 2014 Seattle floating home tour was a success this year and definitely increased interest in this great community.  Add to the the Boats Afloat show this weekend and I would say life on Lake Union is about as exciting as it can be aside from The Fourth Of July! If you are entering the Seattle houseboats world or already a houseboat buyer candidate, then this is truly your time to buy.  Seattle houseboats sellers are motivated because the inventory increase has added competition for the sale of their home.  Buyers are able to pick up some great floating homes right now.

So here are the Seattle houseboats that have sold in the floating home world (both on market and off market that I know about):

seattle houseboats for sale1. Sleepless in Seattle:  All the buzz is about Sleepless.  The house where Tom Hanks resided in while Meg Ryan chased after him in the original stalker movie – before stalking was actually even a thing besides in National Geographic and horror flicks… The Sleepless in Seattle houseboat has an amazing main level and a very dated upper level which I am sure the new owner will remedy.  It has one of the largest floats on the lake and also one of the largest moorage spaces on Lake Union if you have a boat you want to tie up to your house. It is definitely worth the over two million paid for it.  Molly and I almost sold it a couple times in the last year or so for over two million so we weren’t surprised. I knew it had been sold a couple months ago and put it here in my blog, but was politely asked to not report it yet.  The secret is out.  It is sold. Over two million dollars and a great deal in my opinion for one of the Duck Tour’s favorite shout outs on Lake Union.

2. Two floating homes on the 2025 Fairview Ave E Log Foundation dock also closed in the last 30 days. Slip M was a 625 square foot 1 bedroom and 1 bath houseboat built in 1930.  It was listed for $495,000 and after 428 days on market sold for 93.54% of its list price at $420,000.  Also on that dock was slip H – South facing 900 square foot floating home built in 1917, but updated.  Molly and I listed this one for $725,000 and it sold for full price 34 days later.

Seattle Houseboats Pending in Escrow – The Big news on the Lake and I mean big as in expensive and beautiful and amazing is that the Fairview Landing (2369 Fairview Ave E) Seattle luxury floating home listed for $2,950,000 is pending in escrow.  This is a lovely modern concrete dock with beautiful Seattle luxury floating homes and although this particular floating home is on the North side, the neighbors are amazing and so is the house. It’s a big sale on the lake and happy for the new buyers to have gotten on to this phenomenal gated dock.

What’s for sale now in the Seattle floating home world?seattle houseboats

Seattle houseboats for sale are in all price ranges right now – ranging from an unheard of low in Eastlake houseboats for $365,000 (1 bedroom on Tenas Chuck dock) to Roanoke Reef at $1,890,000.  We love the Tenas Chuck floating home for someone wanting to get on to the lake.

We also love 2017 Fairview Ave , Slip O – 2 bedroom home on a great dock for $617,000!  This one is so cute and appeals to many.  Good choice on one of the most well run coops on the lake. As far as the nicer homes go, we really love the house in Westlake listed for $1,299,000 at 2466 Westlake Ave N, Slip 7. You can have a FORTY FOOT BOAT tied up to your house there and it has been absolutely loved by its current owners.

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.

 

Are you a floating home candidate?  Check yes for all those apply.seattle houseboats
