The Seattle Houseboats market: Finally starting to get some listings trickling in….
There are still more buyers than sellers. Inventory is low! This is similar to other Seattle neighborhoods where inventory is difficult to come by. We do know of a few Seattle houseboats on the horizon as far as market inventory, so stay tuned and we will keep you posted, but in the mean time, I wanted to get a Seattle Houseboats floating homes market update online.
Seattle Houseboats Market Update for floating homes on Lake Union and Portage Bay:
Currently there are four Seattle houseboats listings which are Seattle floating homes. Interestingly enough, these Seattle houseboats are priced across the board. There are two Seattle houseboats that are one bedrooms and listed at $449,000 and the new listing priced at $525,000. These are both in Eastlake and are wonderful choices and happen to be on the same dock. The dock these two are on is one of the most well run Seattle floating homes co-ops on Lake Union. It consists of three docks belonging to “The Log Foundation” and is known for its great reputation. The three docks in The Log Foundation are the most Southern Eastlake docks that there are so they are a great choice for views and also if you happen to be commuting to South Lake Union (Amazon). Cats are ok and small lap dogs, too, but you still have to get them approved by the board.
2025 Fairview Ave E #R is the newest one listed of these four. It is a one bedroom/one bath home with the awesome roof top deck everyone wants when they think Seattle houseboats. It is 950 square feet and has a great spot to have your boat alongside. This home is part of the larger cooperative (The Log Foundation) and they own the moorage slips, so it is a secure way to own a Seattle floating home. Let myself or Molly know if you want to see this one or any of them.
There is a great Portage Bay houseboat for sale right now and also another end of dock Eastlake home. These are priced at $750,000 and $2,888,000. Personally, I think the Portage Bay floating home is a great buy. Molly and I have sold end of dock Seattle houseboats and look forward to seeing some great ones come on the market as we have a few buyers ready and willing and eager to purchase an end of dock home. After all, this is Seattle waterfront living at its best!
OH! Almost forgot! If you are interested in Seattle New Construction floating homes, then there is one more slip available in the MLS for the newest Seattle houseboats dock, Ward’s Cove. This is floating homes – not vessels or barges and the new floating home does have to meet certain building requirements and specifications.
We are happy to walk you through any of this. Have a great day! (OH! If you want to list your Seattle floating home or Seattle Houseboat, let us know, please – we would be happy to also just evaluate it for free. no strings attached…)
