Interesting article about the 'perks' of Silicon Valley companies going away. Lunches, laundry, on-site gyms.. An indicator that things are slowing down here? Or just companies tightening their belts? - Alicia

Dropbox is slashing amenities for employees in a cost-cutting effort that could save the company close to $38 million per year, Business Insider first reported this weekend.

According to a company email sent in March, perks on the chopping block include shuttles for its San Francisco employees, laundry service at its gym, and certain meal hours. All together, the benefits had cost the company $25,000 per head, according to the internal email cited in the report.

The new 1st Quarter Market Report just came out from Alain Pinel Realtors, and in looking at it you get a clear view of the interesting market we had last year. Burlingame's median price went up a staggering 21% year-over-year, where Hillsborough's median went down 11% and San Mateo was 6%. 'Hot' cities like San Carlos only went up 1% and lower-priced areas such as San Bruno and Redwood Shores shot way up, probably since the barrier to entry for buyers was lower.

Contact me if you need neighborhood-specific numbers for your area. ~ Alicia
