Mark Zuckerberg -- Modest Move

1/14/2011 4:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and "Social Network" fame has made a big move -- into a 3,800 square foot rental in Palo Alto, CA.

Zuckerberg, whose estimated worth is $7 billion, now has to walk just a few blocks to work.

The house has five bedrooms and four bathrooms, in case Sean Parker comes to visit. The home also has a tricked out security system.

Nice to see a 26-year-old who knows how to manage his money.

Right now he's riding the facebook wave and like all waves things change. It's only he and his girlfriend so having a mansion is ridiculous. Being frugal is great and maybe he is also planning on having a family. The fact that he can also walk to work is cool.

Good for him in not getting a big head!!!

Umm.. RENTing? Why? Wouldn't he be wise to invest in real estate? Maybe he has, and this is just one place to go to near work, but why rent? Seems like a waste of money in his case.

That's funny. My house is much bigger and nicer than his. To be honest I wouldn't be worrying about saving money when my worth is 7 billion. I think he just wants to be that close to work.

Numerous news reports state that Zuckerberg works an average of 16 hours a day at Facebook's headquarters, just a few blocks from this house. He may have nearly infinite financial resources, but keep in mind, just like everyone else here, his most limited resource is time. If he's a work-a-holic, finding the closest available property (whether it's a rental or for sale) to his workplace is the smartest move he could do.

looks like he's taking a page out of Warren Buffet's book...this house is actually quite a bit bigger than one that Buffet has lived in forever

so good for him

That house may look modest, but I'll bet he paid over 2 million for it. Palo Alto is VERY uppity!

I think you made a mistake in printing this house. As many Palo Altoans I know where this house is. Remember the David Packard kidnapping in the 1970's. Why would you tell people where he lives???

Truth    

IT'S NOT THE HOUSE BUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD. SEE, THIS SHIZ IS OK IF YOU'RE AN UNKNOWN BUT DUDE IS KNOWN AROUND THE WORLD. SOME KOOK CAN JUST BREAK IN TO HIS PLACE AND SMACK HIM UPSIDE THE HEAD. GET A BETTER HOOD OR AT LEAST A GATED COMMUNITY WITH 24/7 SECURITY. MIGHT AS WELL JUST GO UP AND KNOCK ON HIS FRIGGIN DOOR AND SAY HEY DUDE... TRICK OR TREAT. OH, AND BY THE WAY.. STICK 'EM UP! WTF??

Great home .... I dont see why people cant believe that money isnt everything and perhaps he wants to be close to work and is very happy there... yes, he could have a house built on the whole block if he wanted to but as far as I can see, the house is gorgous and just right for a single man ... Im sure when he marries and has children he will clear the whole block, buying them out and have his own castle...that might make you all happy...he will be spending the money you all wish yu had.

I guess he manages his money better than his security...what with your posting a picture of the house, the city, and that he walks to work. I'm just sayin...
