Recent analysis from Zillow found most workers at Google, Facebook and Apple headquarters live in homes valued at more than $1.1 million, and these homes have appreciated in value faster than other properties in the same market. Higher-than-average home price appreciation coupled with increasing wages in the tech industry could mean some of these owners may consider a sale. For agents, most of these homes would rank as luxury listings, valued at more than $1 million each.
