Wow now that's what I call a house boat. I believe that would be a hard house/boat to sell. But it would be a fun one to look at and live in. Not many people can say they live a house that is shaped like a boat.

Have a good day!

I have no idea how an appraiser will find comps.  However, it shouldn't  be an issue if FEMA finds that they're in a flood zone.

Remember there are lots  of  buyers  who live in  floating homes (like they are supposed to)...maybe after a few hurricaines they opt out for the  more  stable offering. There  is a buyer for  EVERY listing...the hard part is finding them LOL

Hi Melissa, I assume they're near water?  I would love to see the inside of a house boat, and I read where you can use the $8,000 first time homebuyer credit to buy one! Seeing them on dry land just reminds me of Noah.

Very very cool Melissa - I'm going to check out that website and who knows, maybe take my camera out and get a few nifty shots too.

That's no fair, Melissa. I've been searching for a year for those two homes. Darn, darn, darn. LOL
