LISTING AGENT James Garbutt, Sutton Group West Coast Realty

The Action: Because the house showed well and was in immaculate condition, with a basement suite, it attracted more than 200 people to the open house. Mr. Garbutt received 19 offers. The buyer came from Vancouver. "Port Coquitlam is a hot market and this sale proved it," he says.

What They Got: This six-year-old house with six bedrooms and four bathrooms sits on a 33-by-127-foot lot. The 2,292-square-foot house has an open concept living space, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, gas fireplace and dark laminate flooring. It also has a basement suite, big deck, natural sunlight throughout, radiant heating and attached garage. It's near the new Evergreen line, schools and shopping, but it's also close to an industrial area, train tracks and busy road.

The Agent's Take: The sale set a record for houses that size in the area, according to the agent. "The sale of this home crushed the sales record for this street," says listing agent James Garbutt. A year ago, a larger, newer house on the street sold for $820,000. "We evaluated the home at $950,000, but we decided to price it lower at $798,000 to get clean offers and particular completion dates, terms and conditions," says Mr. Garbutt.
