"Silicon Valley" is moving farther and farther from Silicon Valley - People use the phrase "Silicon Valley" as a shorthand for the technology industry, much as they use "Wall Street" to describe the financial industry. But much like "Wall Street," the term has become increasingly inaccurate. It's still true that the San Francisco Bay Area is the center of the technology sector. But within the Bay Area, the industry's center of mass has been shifting steadily northward, away from towns like Palo Alto and Mountain View toward San Francisco itself.

Uber Purchases Oakland's Former Sears Building, Plans Major HQ Expansion - The expansion into Oakland will make Uber one of the city's largest employers. The company will house 2,000 to 3,000 employees at 1955 Broadway, placing it immediately among the top 10 employers in Oakland and making it the city's largest non-government or health care employer.

Santa Clara County to bolster homeless housing in time for winter storms - The looming spectre of El NiƱo, a weather pattern that is expected to bring heavy rainfall to the Bay Area this winter, has members of the county's Office of Housing and Homeless Support Services working quickly to find and build homeless shelters, including in the underserved areas in North County.

6 Advantages of Real Estate Investing for Savvy Entrepreneurs - Being a real estate investor isn’t always glamorous but it is one of the best ways to build wealth over the long-haul, especially for the entrepreneurial-minded. Here are six reasons to consider investing in rental properties.

Study Reveals What “Green” Means to Home Buyers - NAHB’s publishing arm, BuilderBooks, recently released What Green Means to Home Buyers: Perceptions and Preferences, a study of consumer preferences focusing exclusively on green/high-performance features in the home and the community. The study examines consumers’ attitudes of various green features, concepts or terminologies, the resonance of those terms as potential marketing tools, and the likelihood that the home purchase decision may be influenced by any of these features or terms.
