Nowadays, even the most innovative companies are sticking to a traditional model of sprawling custom corporate campuses. This can be seen in Silicon Valley where tech giants have amenities such as on-site gyms, chefs, and even massage tables. There is however a relatively new comer that is challenging the status quo when it comes to corporate offices. Will their unorthodox model mean that residential real estate agents could have the opportunity to sell to tech billionaires?
In case you hadn’t heard, Snapchat is a really, really big deal. This is true for lots of reasons but we’ll be focusing on just one for today. The unconventional app, which allows users to send self-deleting pictures and videos to their friends, has chosen to forego the corporate campus lifestyle and instead set up shop in many different residential homes in Venice, CA. Well that’s great if you’re a Venice agent, but what about in other areas throughout the country?
If history has taught us anything, it’s that tech companies tend to follow each other’s moves, in this case it could be literally. As many look to Snapchat as a blossoming social media app, Snap’s successors could follow suit. Will small-scale homes soon become the office space norm for tech companies? If that is the case, you need to start preparing now.
