Is a Floating Home for You?

Filed under Amazing Homes on Jun 28,2022 | Tagged in:

If you’ve ever dreamed of a home by the water, you might be interested in taking that dream to the next level with a home on the water. We’re talking about a floating home – a home that is built on a floating foundation.

Unlike a houseboat, which must have a seaworthy design and meet U.S. Coast Guard standards, a floating house is not designed to be moved. Instead, it is permanent and immobile, with a hull typically made of concrete or wood/fiberglass. The home is permanently connected to utilities including electrical, water and sewer lines. There are of course, pros and cons.  Living on the water means that you may have to deal with sea and motion sickness, extreme weather and wind. It may be harder to finance a floating home, and you’ll need to pay mooring fees, insurance and homeowner associations fees, since most floating homes are in marinas with an active HOA. But most owners say the joy of living on the water makes it well worth any downside.  See photos and read more in this article from Realtor.com.

While Vanguard Realty Associates does not specialize in floating homes, if your interest is in a home built on land, we’re ready to help!
