The Number Of Million-Dollar Listings In Facebook's Hometown Nearly Doubled Right Before Its IPO

Last month’s Facebook IPO minted more than 1,000 millionaires, many of whom put their newfound wealth into a tangible asset—real estate.

According to real estate website Zillow, the number of million-dollar homes for sale in Menlo Park, Calif., increased 87 per cent in the 3.5-month period between its initial IPO filing and its debut on the stock market.

The company also found a clear “Menlo Park effect”— places near Facebook’s headquarters had median home values of more than $2 million, while similar homes in nearby cities like San Jose and San Francisco could be had for a quarter of those prices.
