Buying A House Boat in Amsterdam

And now for something completely different. It was an eposide of house hunter but instead of having home buyers looking at 3 different homes we had a couple looking to buy a house boat in the canals of Amsterdam.

Buying a house boat seems to be one of few twists house hunters is working on this season, as I'm also aware that they are doing a show on RV buying.

In any event this show had a couple looking to buy a boat that was docked in the canals of Amsterdam for $750,000 or so. That price seem pretty damn expensive to me for a boat since I imagine that you could get a condo for a better price and not need to deal with the cold that would be part of living on a boat in the winter.

Anyways the boats all seemed to come with a specific docking location which added a lot to their value as well.So even with boats, real estate is all about location, location, location.

3 boats later the couple purchased the smallest and cheapest of the 3 boats as their home.
