Seems that owners of Roanoke Reef floating homes have been holding on to these luxury Seattle floating homes more and more these days. There has only been one sale in the MLS in the last two years of #12: 10 E Roanoke St #12, Seattle 98102 – and it sold in May of 2015 for 97.04% of list price with a final sales price in escrow of $1,640,000.
From the description in the MLS :
… “a fine address with substantial floating homes and off street parking! With a scenic setting, this home offers fine design, amenities, convenience & a unique lifestyle opportunity. Solarium with garden space, dining room, living room, sauna. King size master bedroom with a 5 piece master bath is finished with Carrera marble. Rooftop deck & largest floating deck in complex, city, Gas Works views, moorage, storage, 1 garage stall, one uncovered stall.”
Looking at other luxury Seattle floating homes around the lake, it helps to get a bigger picture of the overall Luxury Seattle Houseboat market. Typically, the same buyer as a Roanoke Reef floating home buyer would also be looking at Wards Cove floating homes, Mallard Cove floating homes, and Fairview Landing floating homes. In addition, they might be looking at some further out slips in Westlake, Portage Bay, and any end of the dock floating homes available.
In the last year looking at just Seattle floating homes for sale that have sold through the MLS and only the ones that are listed or sold for over $1.5M, there have been two Seattle floating homes that have sold recently:
5/24/2016 2339 Fairview Ave E #N An Eastlake floating home on the Tenas Chuck dock – not at the end of the dock, but a stellar example of luxury Seattle waterfront living, this particular Seattle floating home was listed for $1,795,000 and sold with multiple offers for $2,000,000. It was featured in Seattle Met Magazine as one of the ten greatest homes in Seattle history (WOW!!!)
8/23/2016 2822 Boyer Ave E #11 is an end of dock Portage Bay floating home which was listed at a staggering low price of $1,395,000 and sold for a low final price of $1,500,000 after just 16 days on the market.
Current trends have gone higher in valuations with a Wards Cove floating home listed at $3,200,000 and a front row Roanoke Reef floating home listed at even higher.
