Floating Home Market August 2018 Update

By August 17, 2018

Floating Homes

It has been an unusual year for floating homes and houseboats! While we’ve had a strong year for listings with 47 so far (though it was a slow start), only 12 have sold. However, in the last week we’ve seen a handful go pending so we now have 7 pending. Some notable recent activity:

Typically we see that floating homes are overpriced and take much longer to sell as compared to regular homes but as summer winds down I expect we’ll start to see more price reductions as sellers acknowledge if they don’t sell by end of September, the chances of them selling this year will be slim.

Some of my faves on the market right now would be:

From talking to other agents in the community, sounds like we’ll see a few more hit the market over the next month or so, but not a ton.
