A year of uncertainty in the face of the pandemic has stunted many industries, but the real estate market continues to show little sign of slowing down.
After a record-breaking month in January, home sales in Metro Vancouver remain on the up-and-up. According to a recent report, home sales increased by over 42% compared to last January.
With more and more properties being added to the market each day, there’s still plenty of opportunities for locals to find their dream homes. A new transit-oriented community of condos in West Coquitlam, Vista Condos, is helping home buyers inch closer to that dream by accepting deposits of just 5% and crediting buyers their first year’s mortgage.
Designed by award-winning Ciccozzi Architecture and built by Dolomiti Homes — who are known for their Italian craftsmanship and design — Vista promises to deliver modern homes with a west coast flair.
Slated to be move-in-ready between April and June of this year, these Clarke Road condos are offering people a pleasant alternative to the heated bidding wars that have become commonplace downtown. In terms of pricing, two-bedroom homes start at $534,000.
The location provides residents with an urban lifestyle, immersed in a sublime natural setting — quickly becoming a go-to for young families, couples, and students.
Its close proximity to the SkyTrain, downtown Coquitlam, local schools, and outdoor activities are all part of the appeal. Not to mention, the short 35-minute commute from doorstep to downtown Vancouver or the cycling and running trails that are just a stone’s throw away.
As for the interiors, prospective buyers can expect contemporary, elegant living that honours classic design elements. The builders and designers emphasized a modern open layout, the epitome of entertaining family and friends.
The collection of condos comprise one-, two-, and three-bedroom homes, professionally designed interiors, airy nine ft ceilings, front-load washers and dryers, polished chrome hardware, energy-efficient lighting, and laminate flooring.
A stylish aesthetic can be found throughout, and the heart of the home, the kitchen, is no exception. Designed to create a sense of communion, features include vibrant white cabinets for extra storage, KitchenAid stainless-steel appliances, refined countertops and backsplash, as well as counter seating for an extra engaging atmosphere.
The bathrooms, too, were constructed with the utmost intention — designed to be a sanctuary and place of reprieve for residents to relax after a long day. The floating vanity provides a sophisticated feel, while the deep bathtub is made for unwinding.
Vista’s abundant amenity space stretches 4,000 sq ft, including a fitness centre and children’s play area. The expansive rooftop deck alone is 3,300 sq ft and boasts 360-degree views of West Coquitlam and beyond, perfect for relaxing and spending time with loved ones.
Each home also includes a personal storage locker, a secured underground parking space, and home warranty options.
Those curious to take a look at the modern, convenient homes themselves can drop by the Vista Condos presentation centre, which is open from 12 to 5 pm every day (except Fridays).
Vista’s promotion to cover the first year’s mortgage for home buyers is available until the end of March (terms and conditions are also applicable).
