They say that, in real estate, it's all about location, location, location. That's especially true if you're a Silicon Valley worker who wants to avoid a horrible commute.
The 848-square-foot house at 1062 Plymouth Drive in Sunnyvale is in a great location for someone in tech, as it's about a 10-minute drive to the Google, Apple, LinkedIn or Yahoo! campus.
And it just sold for $2M, a mere $550K over asking, according to KRON4.
That is $2,358 per square foot, the highest price paid per square foot ever recorded by the MLS in Sunnyvale.
The two-bedroom, two-bath house sold in just two days of being on the market, reports listing Agent Doug Larson. He told KRON4, "Well [laughs], I was kind of blown away."
The new buyer does plan to live there. He is a young, single man who works in tech.
And he paid all cash for his new home.

It was too tempting to pass up — $2 million, all cash, closing in 10 days. The seller was shocked.
“She said, ‘What?'” Larson said. “She was as taken aback as I was.”
