Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg Lives in Simple Rental House

Mark Zuckerberg may be worth 10 billion euros, but when it comes to living he keeps it small and simple. A rental home is enough.

Last autumn the U.S. site Gawker noticed that the CEO of the popular social networking site Facebook had left from his rented house in Palo Alto, California.

But Zuckerberg is not very adventurous with property. He appears to live just a block away, according to Gawker

Despite all the hype around the possible IPO of Facebook, Zuckerberg has again opted for a rental house.

While his company is worth 50 billion U.S. dollars, and the personal fortunes of the 26-year-old Internet CEO is estimated at 10 billion euros, Zuckerberg has chosen a relatively simple rental house with five bedrooms and an area of 353 square meters.

Biggest advantage: the house is within walking distance of the headquarters of Facebook, which Zuckerberg reportedly spends 16 hours a day.
