Houseboats such as these are no longer allowed to be listed under the Northwest Multiple Listing Service (NWMLS). After years of selling houseboats on the Multiple Listing Service, the powers that be have indicated that these are Boats (Vessels) and are not allowed to be sold by Real Estate Brokers.
We purchased our home (a vessel) 7 years ago because it was listed on the NWMLS. We are also licensed Real Estate Brokers, but have recently acquired our Yacht Brokers License and are therefore fully qualified to list and sell Houseboat-vessels. Having sold these types of homes for the last 6 years has placed us in the unique position of being the most experienced houseboat broker in Seattle. We have created, with our attorney’s assistance, the proper forms for listing and selling these unique properties and we will continue to provide this listing service for all houseboat sellers.
If you are interested in purchasing a houseboat-vessel, rest assured that we are fully qualified and legally licensed to handle this type of transaction.
