WEEKENDEDITION Prices for homes in Northern California are notoriously steep, with tech money contributing to a somewhat inflated real estate market.

According to a recent report by real estate information service DataQuick, luxury home sales in the area continue to grow, with 2,604 homes selling for more than $2 million last year. This was a 28% jump from 2012 and the highest number ever recorded.

The team at Point2Homes helped us gather data on the most expensive homes for sale in nine Silicon Valley cities: Palo Alto, Portola Valley, Sunnyvale, Cupertino, Campbell, Monte Sereno, Los Altos, San Jose, and Mountain View.

Palo Alto — home to tech giants Tim Cook, Marissa Mayer, and Mark Zuckerberg — completely dominated the list with 7 of the 15 priciest homes on the market.
