Tech money has contributed to a rather bloated real estate market in Silicon Valley.
Homes in this in-demand market often sell for more than $US1,000 per square foot. It’s not uncommon for 1,000- or 2,000-square-foot homes that would be tear-downs anywhere else to sell for more than $US1 million here.
Our friends at real estate listings site Point2Homes helped us compile a list of Silicon Valley homes that are listed for startlingly high prices.
You may be surprised to see just how little your money will get you.
