Upcoming Tech IPOs to Boost Prices

2019 is slated to produce a long list of multi-billion-dollar IPOs from San Francisco Bay Area heavyweights like Lyft, Uber, Palantir, Pinterest, Airbnb, Slack, Postmates, and Instacart. The result will be a massive and sudden injection of liquid cash into a region already infamous for having the nation’s priciest real estate, according to Patrick Howell O'Neill, writing for Gizmodo.

One of the projections in his article is the IPOs will produce 211 techie buyers to purchase property above $10 million, while thousands more are expected to buy above $1 million.

While these IPOs won’t have as much effect in Marin County, nevertheless, people do commute from here to San Francisco.
