5 Floating Homes on the Market

Waterfront living is where it’s at. And with warmer weather on the horizon, why not get as close to the H2O as possible?

That’s why we dove into our listings to find the most fabulous floating homes on the market right now. In a floating home, water is all around you—and underneath you. Cast a fishing line from your front door or launch a kayak from the back deck. And, of course, soak up those wonderful water views.

Not to be confused with houseboats, these buoyant abodes are constructed to stay put, anchored within communities as either vacation pads or full-time residences. These harbor-based homes come in a variety of price ranges and offer an array of eye-catching designs.

Sound like a dream come true? Slip on your deck shoes, and have a look at these five floating wonders for sale.
