There are are some cool new Seattle houseboats for sale coming on to the market this week! We also know of some great Seattle houseboat opportunities according to what we have heard on the docks so let us know when you are available to go take a peek ASAP!
The story has been that although we had 22 floating home sales last year, the Seattle houseboats real estate inventory for Seattle floating homes has been so extremely low for all of 2015 thus far. This is very exciting to know that we have so many great new options coming on the lake and our buyers are waiting in the wings for just the right one. Price ranges start in the high three hundred thousands and go up into the multi million dollar listing range so there is something for everyone in the latest bunch of Seattle houseboats for sale – including Seattle houseboats in Westlake, Eastlake, and Portage Bay. There are colorful and artful houseboats, roof top decks, view homes, new construction Seattle floating homes, and historic Seattle houseboats as well as everything in between.
Molly and I have been working on some other cool off market Seattle houseboats sales. Here’s a summary of all Seattle floating homes sold in the last year – both on and off the market for comp purposes: Floating Home Sales Summary – 2014.

Molly and I sold two of the last Seattle houseboats for sale available in the last couple of weeks and we have buyers calling us daily. Lake Union and Portage Bay have very little inventory and only a few seller prospects on the near horizon. If you or anyone you know is interested in selling their Seattle floating home, then please reach out to us immediately. We have a list of buyers with different criteria – everything from a tear down houseboat to build from the float up to a luxury floating home buyer. Most of them are cash buyers. We just need the right Seattle houseboats.
Are you curious what your Seattle floating home might be worth in what is now a seller’s market? Here are some of the requests we have from qualified buyers and cash buyers right now:
- “a teardown houseboat with a nice dock position so we can go down to the float and rebuild”
- something on the Fairview Landings dock with a rooftop deck, parking, and a view. (Fairview Landings is a newer luxury dock)
- floating home on the Phoenix dock (a condo dock on Lake Union in the Eastlake neighborhood)
- a rental in Westlake to purchase as an investment initially and then fix up and sell.
- end of dock floating homes in Westlake, Eastlake, or Portage Bay
- first time home buyer looking to just get his feet wet in the houseboat market and wants a well priced first on the dock to get acquainted with the community
- floating home with a view and also room for their 22 foot boat
- modern turn key floating home
- historic classic houseboat for a second home on a quiet dock with no dogs.
That is just a few. We get inquiries many times during the day and keep a list of them and keep in contact with them as new Seattle houseboats for sale come on the market. text me or call me if you don’t mind and Molly and I can schedule a visit to your home for an evaluation – no strings attached of course.

Seattle Luxury Floating Homes: Record Sale Price For Lake Union Houseboats
On 10/30/2012 after 60 days on the market and multiple offers including a back up offer in case the first one failed, Floating Home #1 on the Fairview Landing dock (2369 Fairvew Ave E) closed in escrow and set a new record in recent history forSeattle floating homes and also became a significant placesetter in Seattle luxury homes sales in 2012 as well.
Buzz around the lake on a historic high floating home sale:
This Seattle floating home was listed for an incredible $3,375,000, and surprisingly did not receive full price even with multiple offers and incredible interest, but still places itself in the top for houseboat sales on Lake Union. Seattle Floating Home Realtor Courtney Cooper at Cooper Jacobs Real Estate told us, “You just wish you could sell some of these distinctive homes to everyone who desires and covets them, but unfortunately this was a once in a lifetime home.” There are other exceptional floating homes on the Fairview Landing dock which itself seems more like a floating luxury neighborhood of sprawling estates than a traditional Seattle houseboat dock at times. Recent sales on the dock have been in excess of $2 Million dollars and Cooper counts herself as one of the Lake Union Realtors who has a book of clients waiting to snap one up.
The final sales price on this Seattle luxury floating home was recorded at $3,000,000, but there was apparently some seller financing which made the future interest earned worth taking the lower recorded price.
It still goes down as a record sale in the floating home market.
