Facebook's Real Estate Update

Facebook's Real Estate Update Is the Social Network's IPO Propelling Silicon Valley's Real Estate Market? Facebook's IPO has been a national news topic for months with questions looming as to how all those newly minted Facebook millionaires will start to spend their wealth. With speculation that Facebook and other recent IPOS could con- tribute to another Bay Area housing boom, Zillow looked at the effect of widespread wealth on a local housing market. We've found that median Silicon Valley home values are con- sistently up to 15 times that of the median U.S. home value, and there has been a recent uptick in million dollar listings in parallel with the Facebook IPO.
