Location: Seattle, Wash.
The Skinny: Bobbing in the waters of Lake Union, just to the north of downtown Seattle, this quaint little houseboat offers a different way of life for $145K. Of course, sharing this tiny escape from reality with anyone else might be next to impossible, but the petite quarters are certainly cute enough to keep one occupant happy. Located in a marina slip, the houseboat was rebuilt in 2005 and now has an updated stove, new under-counter fridge, and charming beadboard woodwork. The commercial-looking marina, guarded by a worn out chain-link fence, is completely bereft of curb appeal, but the novelty of living on the water might overcome any misgivings about the location, especially when downtown is just minutes away.
