The big sell: Listing agent Kathy Plante says the buyers walked in with their realtor at the first open house and submitted an offer that night. The reason for their enthusiasm? A comprehensively updated home that showcases new kitchen cabinets, stainless-steel appliances, a contemporary glass backsplash, designer paintwork and dark laminate flooring. The condo has an open-concept living and dining room with a gas fireplace and ample room for a large-screen television. Bonus features include a walk-in pantry off the kitchen, a master bedroom with space for a king-sized bed and a walk-in closet, a private south-facing patio, and an unusual feature for a condo — a built-in vacuum. The Lakeside Terrace complex was built in 1996 in North Coquitlam, and is steps from the future Evergreen Line, parks, running trails, restaurants, shops and schools. Pets and rentals are allowed with restrictions.
