May 2012 Seattle Floating Homes Market On Lake

by Courtney Cooper, Realtor, Cooper Jacobs Real Estate, courtney@cooperjacobs.com, 206-850-8841 ·

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.

You can find the full NWMLS print out here for the current Seattle Floating Homes market, but if you have specific questions about Seattle houseboats for sale, please let me know.  I am happy to help. :

Fall Days Around Lake Union

by Courtney Cooper, Realtor, Cooper Jacobs Real Estate, courtney@cooperjacobs.com, 206-850-8841 ·

Fremont Bridge Seattle, WA

Fall Days Around Lake Union

Written By Brian Olsen 206.898.3627 Brian@CooperJacobs.com

Walking around Lake Union is a great way to see the action on the water close up. There are many areas along the loop such as Fremont and Gas Works ParkSouth Lake Union that hosts the Center for Wooden Boats. Today, I saw a group of men carving a canoe out of wood. There is also a model boat pond but nobody was there on this day, probably due to the strong Fall weather wind and much cooler temperature. It was 57 degrees in Seattle today. Another area on the Lake Union loop is Wards Covewhich is a newer development of houseboats at Eastlake.

The loop around Lake Union is about 6.2 miles the way I go along the Burke Gilman Trail over the Fremont Bridge and along Westlake past Kenmore Air, throughEastlake and over the University Bridge back to Burke Gilman.

Lake Union & Husky Stadium

The walk takes about 90 minutes if done quickly and about 2 hours if approached as more of a stroll. Walking around Lake Union on the 4th of July is a wonderful experience. There are so many rooftop parties on the Seattle houseboats and as one navigates the loop there are different personalities in the various communities. Some are casual and earthy and other houseboat party’s host live bands performing for everyone to hear. People start gathering at Gas Works Park early in the morning to stake out their space and watch the 4th of July fireworks display. It does not need to be a holiday to enjoy the loop. There are many interesting stops along the way. Kenmore Air has a seaport to fly passengers around the Pacific Northwest. One can watch the line of seaplanes approach South Lake Union as the pilots bring the planes in from Kenmore, WA. One after another the planes land on the water and taxi to the dock and tie up. There are also street signs located at the waters edge. Seattle streets run to the water and mark public access to Lake Union. Take an opportunity this Fall to explore the Lake Union loop and action on the water that locals call the ‘working lake’.

 

Cooper Jacobs Real Estate headquarters is in Wallingford, not far from the loop. Several of our real estate agents walk the loop and some kayak Lake Union, Green Lake and others. There is so much to see in Seattle, Washington. We know where theSleepless In Seattle houseboat is. Do you? Call to schedule a tour of Seattle real estate and let us know if you would like more information about the Seattle neighborhoods around Lake Union!

Seattle Houseboats on Lake Union

by Courtney Cooper, Realtor, Cooper Jacobs Real Estate, courtney@cooperjacobs.com, 206-850-8841 ·

Why Live in a Seattle Houseboat on the Water in Seattle?

One picture to answer it all:

Lake Union homes

Lake Union is an ever changing mash of life, fun, work, and more.  It has long been the working lake of Seattle, and there is a great mix of activity going on – you can always find something interesting on Lake Union.  Lake Union floating homes are among my favorite things in this part of Seattle and all of Seattle actually.  Why not live on Lake Union and take in the ever changing scenery?  Seattle houseboats are a great in city condo alternative and an excellent lifestyle choice for a wide variety of Seattlelites.   Just sit on your roof top deck, or jump in your kayak and take part in the activity, watch the wild life, or try a SUP (stand up paddleboard) for first hand glances of everything.

Let us know if you are interested in looking at Seattle houseboats for sale.  Molly and I have our favorites – and some that aren’t actually publicly listed, too (shhh!)
