"Well, it was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were suppose to be together... and I knew it. I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home... only to no home I'd ever known... I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like... magic."

From: SeattlePI.com 'Sleepless in Seattle' houseboat for sale -- Tom Hanks not included By BRAD WONGP-I REPORTER Well, maybe those historically low mortgage rates might come in handy after all. That is, if you want to buy the houseboat from the movie "Sleepless in Seattle." Fans of the 1993 film starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan will be pleased to know the 2,075-square-foot houseboat on Lake Union is selling for $2.5 million, according to a Coldwell Banker Bain listing that is "New on Market." The Southlake, a blog for the South Lake Union community, pointed out the houseboat sale Saturday morning. Since being listed Tuesday, more than 50 real estate agents and about a dozen potential buyers have toured the houseboat, said Rick Miner, the Coldwell Banker Bain agent who is showing the home. "It's probably the largest floating home on Lake Union," he said Saturday. "On a day like today, you're right in front of the boats. It's awesome." The owners, a husband and wife, bought it 14 years ago. "They love it but want to move to the East Coast to be near the grandkids," he said. On Saturday alone, Miner said he spent more than four hours at the houseboat for four different showings. The houseboat, built in 1978, features four bedrooms, nearly two full bathrooms, large windows and views of downtown Seattle. But forget about movie memorabilia. Miner said there were no special items in the home to hint at its motion picture fame. Miner said the wooden two-story structure with a shake roof incorporates traditional styling, a Cape Cod influence and "a casual beach house feel." So, generally speaking, how much would this piece of cinematic history cost you? If you can afford a $625,000 down payment and secure some type of jumbo mortgage with a rate of 8 percent, your monthly costs would be about $13,800. This example presumes a 30-year loan term. Of course, you can always just pay cash.
