Hi Kirsten, Two things:
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.

Hi Kristin,

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.

If you want to look at available housing without committing to a Realtor or using a website sponsored by a Realtor, try...

http://Www.mlslistings.com - this is the public portal for the multiple listing service here in Santa Clara County and
http://Www.Realtor.com - this is the industry's real estate website and lists homes for sale throughout the country.

Good luck!

Cash is nice, but sellers are driving by price. What are you looking for in a neighborhood and what are you expecting to get in a single family home for that price?

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.

Yes there are. It is wise to remember that at close of escrow the seller gets all cash no matter if you put 3.5% down or you have all the money in your saving account. An all cash transaction can potentially make for a smoother and faster escrow. Call me please. 650-468-3322
