Will Uber’s IPO really boost San Francisco house prices?

Ride-sharing service Uber’s initial public offering is expected to attract high demand from investors. And experts say that could have major implications for home buyers and owners in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Uber disclosed Thursday that it had filed for an initial public offering, which some are calling the most anticipated since Facebook. And it’s just one of many major tech companies that will go public this year.

Uber’s rival Lyft LYFT, -1.83%already went public this year. The first trade was executed for $87.24, well above the company’s $72 IPO price. Since then shares have dropped below $60, especially on the news of Uber’s IPO filing.
