You did not specify your budget, square footage, lot size. Keep in mind San Jose is no longer
a new city as it was before. 40 Years homes are common.
If you really like original hard wood(real oak) floor 45-50 years ago all homes had them. To refinish it is only $2.20/sf... If you work in SJ have a limited budget certain parts of 95127(Berreasa) hill side got homes with views.
They are very reasonable relatively speaking.
It is hard to get jumbo loan again so you need to have a price target only look at these areas.
