Buying a Floating Home in Marin County

Most floating homes in Marin County are priced in the $500,000 - $800,000 range.  While this sounds like an excellent price point for waterfront living in Marin County, there are also monthly fees associated with owning a floating home which often range from $700 - $1,500 per month.  These fees cover such things as berth lease, water, garbage, sewer and parking. 

In addition to monthly fees, prospective floating home owners should also budget for property taxes (which are initially determined by the sale price) as well as homeowner's insurance to cover their floating home. Insurance premiums for floating homes are often considerably higher than a similarly priced single family home or condominium.

Financing a Floating Home Purchase

Financing a floating home can present a challenge since floating homes are considered personal property (as opposed to real property) which significantly decreases the pool of available lenders. Cash buyers are commonplace with floating homes however a few Bay Area lenders can provide financing for floating home purchases if buyers have a strong credit history, are able to make a 20% down payment and meet other lending criteria.  An experienced Marin Realtor should be able to provide you with Floating Home Lender referrals.
