Seattle Houseboats Market Update: Thankful

Seattle Houseboats Market: We Are Thankful to You All.2017 Fairview ave e

There are a lot of pending Seattle houseboats in the MLS right now.  We had a ton of floating home inventory and now we are down to just a few.  There are only two under a million right now - One at 2017 Fairview Ave E and another on a leased dock in Eastlake.  Thankful is the word I am using right now being that we happen to be in the end of November.  Molly and I are extremely thankful for the great fortune we have had in meeting and working with each and every one of you this year.  We had some of the most interesting and awesome clients ever and that made 2014 a wonderful year on Lake Union. We sold a few off market and were thankful that those wonderful people called us to do so. People on the lake are special. The Seattle floating homes community is one of a kind and I am thankful to have been embraced into it.   We love working with you and being your agents!

We aren't finished yet! This year is far from over and there are some good buys for Seattle houseboats  on Lake Union!

There is Slip O on the Log Foundation dock at 2017 Fairview Ave E. in Eastlake - 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, remodeled and updated 1920 floating home.  Really special place and opportunity to tie up canoes and kayaks with possible Lake Union moorage down the road.  This is the buy of the century for floating homes in my opinion.  Let us know if you want more info or want to see it.  It is solid.   $599,000

We have one coming on tomorrow that will be exciting and know of a few others who may want to sell so let us know what YOU are looking for.  Seattle houseboats are all unique. There are no two alike and each one will have its pluses and minuses. Give us your list of pluses....

seattle floating homesA word about Seattle Houseboats because there is always confusion.......

"Seattle houseboats"  is a phrase which refers to three different types of water homes:  floating homes, barges, and vessels.  The term is used interchangeably with all three of these.  It is correct to call all three Seattle houseboats. 

Seattle floating homes are in the MLS and sold by real estate agents because of the special realty Seattle afloatattached to them - the submerged parcel, and also because they are more or less permanently attached to the dock.  The can not move without being towed and rarely are moved.  Some barges are in the MLS if they reside in an owned slip, aka real estate. Vessel type houseboats are not in the MLS ever.  They are boats.  They have steering and self propulsion. Make sure you that if you are interested in one of these that you work with someone with a vessel dealer license. Molly and I are licensed real estate agents though Cooper Jacobs Real Estate and our company Seattle Afloat also has a vessel dealers license so we can help you with ALL Seattle Houseboats.
