Online real estate network Zillow examined how Facebook’s initial public offering and the new wealth it created among employees of the social network affected the Silicon Valley housing market.

Among the topics Zillow explored: the value of homes near Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif., including nearby town such as Woodside and Los Altos Hills, as well as the rise in home sale prices in Silicon Valley and what $1 million gets buyers in that region compared with the rest of the country.

According to Zillow, the number of homes listed for sale at $1 million or more increased 87 percent in the three months between Facebook’s IPO filing and its May 18 IPO.
