East Bay Floating Homes For Sale

View today's hottest East Bay floating homes for sale and real estate in the East Bay below! Most people have heard of the floating homes in Sausalito, where the late, great Otis Redding penned the lyrics to "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay." Perhaps not as well known, but equally intriguing, are the floating home communities in San Francisco's East Bay. A number of the marinas that dot the coastline of Alameda and Contra Costa counties have liveaboard berths for seaworthy houseboats and boats; however, due to stringent regulations, only three — Barnhill, Point San Pablo, and Berkeley — have been approved by the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission as floating home communities in the East Bay. To request up-to-date information about houseboats for sale in the East Bay or to arrange a private showing, contact your East Bay real estate experts today. Read more about East Bay floating homes.

East Bay Floating Home Market

Living aboard a houseboat or in a floating home may sound romantic, but it isn't just for the footloose and fancy-free. Most of the East Bay marinas are conveniently located, and offer the advantage of an easy commute for the resident that must work for a living. Only minutes away from San Francisco and other Bay Area locations by way of surface roads and BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), Barnhill Marina and Berkeley Marina are centrally located in the hub of East Bay activity. The San Pablo Yacht Harbor at Point San Pablo is further north and perfectly situated for travel to Marin County via the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge as well as other East Bay locations.

Floating homes tend to be smaller than conventional homes, and come in a variety of shapes and styles, from simple cottages and shanties to slightly larger dwellings with traditional rooms, stairways, kitchens, and amenities similar to their land-loving cousins. Although most folks who live in a floating home in the East Bay own their home, they don't own the docking space and pay a monthly dock fee to the marina, which often includes a parking space (and occasionally sewer hook-ups), along with utilities, which are all land based.

If you are looking for a home in the East Bay and are ready to think out-of-the-box, consider buying a floating home in the East Bay. Who knows, this time next year you might find yourself enjoying early morning sunrises, stunning sunsets, and gorgeous views surrounded by all the comforts of your very special and unique floating East Bay home.
