Smart House. Bay Area Home That Zuck And Friends Launched Facebook In Hits The Market.

Every company started out with humble beginnings—even ones valued at half a trillion dollars. 

Back in the summer of 2004, Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz, and Sean Parker rented a six-bedroom, five-bedroom house in the Bay Area suburb of Los Altos. They were on a mission to create the social media platform that would eventually be called Facebook and then Meta. 

That house is now for sale, listed at $5.3 million for anyone that wants to live in a house that played a role in Silicon Valley history. 

The listing is held by realtors Crystal Souza and Hannah Isaka of Live Play Real Estate. Here’s language from the official MLS listing. 

“The famous Facebook house…is located in the prestigious country club neighborhood of Los Altos. This slice of Silicon Valley history sits at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac with a personalized soundwall in the expansive backyard and gazebo perfect for barbecues and get-togethers.”

Souza said that after the Facebook creators moved into the rental house the social media company jumped from 200,000 users to millions as the company expanded across the globe. After they outgrew the home, they moved out, and other entrepreneurs moved in, along with big-time executives from Toyota, Linkedin, Apple, and several other tech giants. 

To give you an idea of how the real estate market has exploded in the Bay Area, the last time the home was sold in 1998, the transaction price was $250,000.
