A New Unique Way of Getting Pre-IPO Facebook Shares

Interested in getting shares of the ever popular Facebook stock before the company goes public? Here is a unique way of getting some pre-IPO shares of Facebook: trade your house.

A couple has already done this, or at least tried. A couple in Los Gatos, California has offered to trade their 10,000 square foot house with six bedrooms for $29 million worth of Facebook shares. The house has five-an-a-half baths and Italian marble throughout the mansion. Plus, an eight car garage.

The buzz for Facebook appears to be greater than the Apple IPO or many of the dot com company IPOs. What sort of trades will we see next for this stock?
