The big sell: According to listing realtor Robert Crowe, this is a good example of how staging can help a property by optimizing the available space. Having previously been on the market for 351 days with another agent, this townhouse in the Novo 2 development was re-listed and the main floor staged, resulting in a sale in just 22 days. It is a two-level suite with a large private patio that provides space for container gardening and entertaining. There are two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, with another bathroom on the main floor. The complex is part of the residential development at Simon Fraser University and provides recreational facilities inside with a gym, billiards room and lounge, as well as outside with myriad walking, hiking and mountain bike trails around Burnaby Mountain.
