Seattle Houseboats for Sale: 2331 Fairview Ave E, Slip X

Seattle Floating Home Just Listed and available for the first time in 20 years!

seattle houseboats for sale in eastlakeLooking at Lake Union and Seattle houseboats? Living on Lake Union is one of the most amazing Seattle lifestyles!

It is interesting because usually when Molly and I hear about a Seattle floating home that hasn’t been on the market for two decades, we wince a little and wonder what kind of project we may be walking into.  Seattle houseboats can be quite dilapidated at times and there are many older ones which have much deferred maintenance. That is absolutely not the case with this Seattle floating home located at 2331 Fairview Ave E in Slip X.  It is simply stunning and makes me want to sit down and have a glass of wine and chat with the neighbors on a warm sunny day with the water lapping at my toes. Seattle houseboats

The pictures tell a beautiful story of a love affair with a home which is quite obvious at first glance, but look further at the details which have gone into this home over the years and it is difficult to not be impressed.  From the exterior being painted in the last five years to the stringers being replaced as needed, inside and out there are upgrades and detailed maintenance tasks like none we have seen before.  From the gas lines and new electrical and windows to the raised ceiling, vaulted ceilings, and sunny skylights, this home is comfortable for modern living.  The kitchen is upscale with both an eating bar and a dining room with French doors out to the deck.  There are the seldom found in a floating home luxuries of  gas cooking, a gas fireplace, and on-demand hot water, plus additional practical bigger ticket items like a new roof in 2010. Two bedrooms, a bath, and lots of character await you here with an asking price of only $650,000.

Seattle Floating Homes Hitting The Market With Gorgeous Weather

Seattle Floating Homes Market Update – Catching Up With Lake Union Houseboats, The Shelby Dock, and Recent Sales1213 e shelby st

There has been some activity in the Seattle real estate market afloat.  There Are FOUR ACTIVE Seattle Floating Homes For Sale Currently ranging in price from $725,000 to $799,000.  They are located on The Shelby Dock in Portage Bay and The Log Foundation Dock in Eastlake.

Seattle floating homes for sale are few and far between and each one is somewhat different or greatly different.  You really need to know what your must haves and would be nice to have list is before you begin looking.  Then, be prepared to adjust that list further, because chances are that your list won’t match anything out there.  To begin with there are only around 500 of these Seattle floating homes. They come in many different variations, but it is rare to find one that truly checks all of the boxes so compromise is common.  There are four Seattle floating homes for sale right now in the MLS.  In addition to these, Molly and I know of at least four more that are interested in selling or will be on the market soon.  We won’t talk about these in this article, but please feel free to reach out if you are interested in hiring us to represent you so that you have true access to EXACTLY what is going on in the market.

1213 e shelby stPrivate Sales, FSBO, Bring Your Buyers To Us????  

NOT.  If you want the most money for your property in the least amount of time, LIST IT. There has been a trend for Seattle houseboats sellers to want to pick our brains and learn about the market and try to sell the home off market on their own.  This does a huge disservice to YOU and to your return on investment, FYI.  The open Seattle real estate market is the only way to get the most money for what might be your biggest investment.   Molly and I can usually get you more than enough extra in sales numbers to warrant the additional expense of having your floating home sale handled by an actual seasoned veteran who knows everything about Seattle floating homes. We have all the resources at our finger tips, have worked years to have the relationships that you will find vital, and we are Seattle Houseboats Experts.

A Note On The Shelby Dock in Portage Bay…

The Shelby Dock is located at 1213 E Shelby Street  in Portage Bay.  It offers easy access to University of Washington and Downtown Seattle and is home to many adorable Seattle floating homes. So why are three of the four Seattle floating homes for sale located on the Shelby Dock  (The Seattle floating homes for sale on the Shelby Dock that are active currently range in price from $725,000 to $799,000)?  There are a number of reasons why homeowners buy and sell at any given time.  Consider yourself lucky that there are so many choices at this time, PLUS the dock is being replaced and will be an unbelievable asset to future living there.  Molly and I are excited to see the progress and look forward to showing you any of these special homes.   As one of the lucky homeowners on The Shelby Dock put it, “those interested in living in one of the quieter floating homes neighborhoods have a rare opportunity to choose from a variety of floating home styles and sizes on this well organized floating homes dock”.

What Else Is Going On With Seattle Floating Homes?
