List Your Houseboats, Dutch Barges, Narrowboats and Residential/Leisure Moorings
Sell your houseboat, dutch barge, narrowboat, floating home and moorings!
It can be hard to find where to sell houseboats, dutch barges, narrowboats, waterside property and floating homes. These intersting homes are a great way to live on a river, canal or estruary. Residential and leisure moorings, even in central London can now be obtained at very good prices (In London even next to Canary Wharf, they are available for approximately £500+ per month).
You can list your houseboat, dutch barge, floating home, narrowboat or residential/leisure mooring for sale on UnusualHomes.co.uk or search for a converted houseboat or unconverted barge to buy. Unconverted boats, butties and barges are obviously far cheaper and allow you to put your own mark on - however, they can be a lot of work!
Canalside Property For Peanuts!
Canalside properties and waterfront homes often command a massive premium in the property market. However, there are cheaper ways to live near the water, if you are prepared to be slightly creative with your property purchase.
A couple back in 2004 bought a toilet block by the beach in Norfolk and spent a mere £85,000 renovating it into a luxury two bedroom home. Auctions are fantastic places to grab a bargain if you are prepared to put the work in. There are plenty of interesting properties around and with a bit of imagination make fantastic places to live.
Houseboats are a fantastic way to live on the water, have a room with a view and plenty of space for the same price as a bedsit in the capital. Furthermore if you are willing to put in some time and effort in refurbishing, then your budget be cut even further...
