It has one parking space attached which is a rare commodity for houseboats.  Listed for $399,000 and Sold for $350,000: Built in 1940 and on the market for 30 days.  Here are the public remarks from the MLS:

  • 3146 Portage Bay Place E #M:  1 bedroom/ 1 bath Portage Bay floating home for sale.  Listed at $389,000 and sold in a bidding war for $400,000 .  This was a bank owned Seattle floating home.  Bank owned Seattle floating homes for sale (REO properties) are few and far between so this was an interesting house.  It had been on the market before and was pending but due to the DNR lease renewal pending, the buyers decided to walk allowing a new set of buyers to get a chance at this end of dock floating home.  Because of the sale falling through, the market time was increased at 339 days.   This one had some very Vegas-like touches and was definitely going to need some work, but what a great price for the end of the dock!  Here are the public remarks from the NWMLS listing:
