Deciding to take $100,000 off the table must be tough, and these sellers have done it twice, taking the price of this 2 bedroom, 2 bath, houseboat from $1,595,000 (when we first mentioned it) down to $1,495,000, and then down to $1,395,000. Of course, maybe even a 2,000 square foot floating home with floor-to-ceiling windows and views of Lake Union can come to market with a price that is too high for the buying community. So, wait a while, drop the price, wait a while, drop the price, waiting for buyers who will finally say Sold! In the meantime, the view hasn't changed. The allure of living on a lake with Seattle as a backdrop remains as high as ever. The sellers may have $200K less to work with, but the buyers get $200K more to spend on paint and maybe a boat to moor off the lower deck.
