Mark Zuckerberg loves REALTORS®! May 8, 2011

That might seem a bit extreme but whatever! I love helping first-time home-buyers (though I’ve yet to work with one in this price range)! I’m glad he invested in real estate and I love that he isn’t one of those commitment-phobic millionaires/billionaires that doesn’t want to commit to a home! High fives, Mr. Mark!

One thing that is miffing me in most of the stories about this is that they’re saying he’s so young (26 but almost 27) for a first-time home-buyer… um, check the stats! The median age for a home-buyer is 30 which means more than half of them are under 30! He’s the perfect age to buy his very 1st home!

What’s the home like? It’s 5,617 SF, sits on a lot just over 17K SF, 5 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths, a banquet-size dining room, a music alcove and glassed-in porch (how awesome does that sound?!). The backyard has a saltwater pool (very cool!), a spa and an outdoor gazebo (with a fireplace). It’s located on Edgewood Drive in Crescent Park (a neighborhood). The property is surrounded by a wall and citrus trees (how CA!).

I know that seems big but it’s in a real homey kind of town (Palo Alto) and it looks really homey. He could’ve gone all palatial but I kind of dig this look on him. And, btw Mr. Mark, Happy early Birthday! He’ll be 27 on the 14th Winking smile
