Seattle Houseboats: Lake Union & Portage Bay Has Very Little Inventory

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

Seriously.  There is very little. Seattle houseboats

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.

Lake Union Floating Home: Here’s Your Chance To Live Sleepless In Seattle Style

Monday, January 17th, 2011

Lake Union Floating Home:

Here’s Your Chance To Live Sleepless In Seattle Style – Check out this one – just happens to also be the most affordable Seattle floating home!

Owned moorage and cheaper dues than a condo, this is an ideal situation for someone wanting to dip their toes into Lake Union living!

Large entertainment sized kitchen and cozy sleeping loft, charming claw foot tub/shower combo, and room to move right in, office, closet space, and living room with fireplace plus large front deck to feel the gentle motion as boats go by…

Great investment opportunity for future expansion if you want to go up a level or add a roof top deck.  Recent dive inspection showed the care that has gone into keeping this beautiful house in great condition afloat on top of Lake Union.

Asking only $299,000, but also willing to consider offers.  Ask us about financing, too.  Seattle houseboat financing is very specialized, but we have some great lenders.

Want to See Seattle Houseboat History Up Close And Personal?

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Want to See Seattle Houseboat History Up Close And Personal? Your stepping on board into it!   Yes it has new carpet and a modern kitchen among other updates and upgrades, but this home is for sale on it’s 100th Birthday year!  Complete with secret hatches and a claw foot tub, this is a one of a kind uniques way to live on Lake Union in the heart of Seattle with quick access to Downtown Seattle, Queen Anne, Westlake (your here), Eastlake, Fremont, and more.  Access to major trail infrastructure right off the dock and low low low living fees here.

Why on earth would you ever choose a condo over this? ( I am talking to you, South Lake Union Condo & Amazon relocation buyers:)) I would rather have the water gently rocking me to sleep than live in a box surrounded by neighbors on all of my walls….  This is more affordable, too!  The myth of houseboat living as expensive is not true in many cases because most Seattle floating homes  are on owned docks now instead of paying large moorage fees to dock lords….  $325,000 and the monthly dues?  $300 which includes your Lake Union moorage, water, sewer, garbage, and taxes on your portion of the owned houseboat dock (yes you cooperatively own the dock!!).

The real perk and what make living on a Seattle floating home today affordable is the taxes on the home itself.. Ready for it?  $584 A YEAR!!!  Compare that to thousands for a condo or land house…

Let us know if you want to visit this beauty on its birthday or if there are others you might want to see.  We can show you all Seattle floating homes in the Seattle MLS no matter who they are listed with and we also have a pretty good line on some goodies that will be coming on the market soon. homes@SeattleAfloat.com or call Courtney at 206-850-8841
