San Jose is so big, it is kind of like saying "How much to buy a home in London?" and to an outsider, that might seem like a fair question. However, there is Kensington and South Kensington and maybe 50 or 60 answers to the same question. San Jose, with 1 million people, is much like London in the sense that we have lots and lots of smaller areas within the city that each have their own property values.
Also San Jose is bordered by Campbell, Santa Clara, Cupertino, Mountain View, Saratoga, Milpitas, and all of these cities (and more) are within a hop and a skip from San Jose proper. In each of these communities you can find homes for less and more pricing!
If you like the "city" feeling you might like the new highrise condominiums in downtown San Jose. If you like a more rural country feeling, you might like Almaden or Los Gatos or Saratoga.
It's really challenging to get to know all of the communities that make up this area. However, in summary very little can be found for under $500K and many people prefer closer to $850K as far as wanting at least 2,000 SF and so forth.
Hope this helps!

Good luck for your house search
While you specified you want the price of a 3 bedroom home in San Jose, may I also suggest you consider other areas in the San Francisco Bay Area. Many people live in other cities and commute to San Jose for their job. I cover many cities in the "east bay", where you will find homes at more reasonable prices than in San Jose. However, I agree with Charles in that well priced homes sell very quickly, throughout the Bay Area. Meet with a real estate agent to understand the steps involved in purchasing a home in California, and then start looking when you are ready.

The price range for a 3 bedroom house in San Jose is a wide range, depending on the location.
For a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house with approximately 1,500 square feet of living area, a 6,000 square foot lot, the location of the property will have an enormous amount of influence on the price.
In West San Jose, which is generally the most expensive area of San Jose, in the 95129 zip code the price for a 3 bedroom house is generally in the range of $1,000,000 to $1,300,000.
In South San Jose the prices can be as low as $400,000 to $500,000.
Other parts of San Jose will generally be somewhere between those two extremes.
