1. Please explain more precisely what mean by "good".
2. Cash is not relevant in 99% of all purchases. The Net price to the Seller is the major decider.
If you mean a single family detached home on a lot with front and back yards, the price range in which you hope to find a home is going to small and overrun with eager buyers who have more money than your budget to spend. You might broaden your chances by looking at condominiums and attached housing, and giving other areas outside of the Bay Area a chance for your next home.

I have a listing coming up in a sweet spot in the Alum Rock foothills. It is a 4 bedroom 2 bath, 10,000 +/- sq ft. lot, quiet street, with view of the mountains. The home has been updated and it offers a great home business opportunity, as the garage is detached with a small studio which has separate entrance. It is surrounded by homes which show price of ownership. It will be listed at $525,000.
Homes are being sold in the Evergreen area for less than $500,000. There have been 14 sales below $500k since 6/1/2013
