Seattle Floating Homes Market Update May 2012
Inventory is still low. There are only SIX Seattle floating homes on the market right now. They range in price form $350,000 for a 2 bedroom 1 bath 1000 square foot floating home in Westlake to $2,150,000 for a 2 bedroom 1.75 bath 2216 square feet Seattle floating home on Portage Bay with extra moorage for great Lake Union slip rental income potential. In addition there are still some Ward’s Cove slips available if you are interested in new construction Seattle floating homes.
Other Seattle floating homes for sale are on docks located at 2821 Fairview Ave E, 933 N Northlake Way (lee’s Moorings), 2201 Fairview Ave E, and 1215 E Allison St – these are all in Westlake, Eastlake, and Portage Bay, as well as Northlake for the Lee’s Mooring dock.
Pending in Escrow: There is a Roanoke Reef floating home for sale that is currently pending after being on the market for just 8 days (Roanoke Reef floating home owners, please take note: If your home did not sell on that dock then it was not priced right or was not marketed correctly or in some cases, both.). This was a 2 bedroom 2.5 bath 1931 square feet floating home listed at $1,295,000.
Latest SOLD Seattle floating homes: 2770 Westlake Ave N, Houseboat #5 – a 2 bedroom 1 bath Seattle floating home on the Old Boathouse dock. It is 987 square feet and was listed for $475,000 and finally sold after 285 days for $407,000. One thing to consider when looking at the price this one sold for versus the list price is the Aurora Bridge overhead which did make some buyers shy away. It is interesting because stand on the dock for five minutes and you won’t even notice the bridge. Add to that the bonus this lucky buyer got was on eof the biggest floating “back yards” on Lake Union.
