    Get a massive pile of cash on your table, then kiss it all away.

    Is your budget 1.3M?

      You can’t buy a house or apartment for 500k in South Bay. Even the cheapest property is 700-800k in any decent location and that might just be a 1 bedroom condo. Where did you move from?

      You can’t buy anything without 1.1-1.5M. Yes it’ll be a shack. For a new condo / townhouse then 1.2-1.4M.

    Near Apple, like Cupertino? I don’t think there’s any more houses there under 2mil.

    Set your budget, make a list of what is important for you, school, park, community etc and do your search online

      This will tell u all the open house events near the area that you’re looking. Just spend a few weekends and see if you like the place. A good realtor will stand on your side to check for bad things.

    Brand new modern constructions outside of Cupertino are much better than the multi-million dollar run down houses from the 1940s inside Cupertino.

    Might be doable to get a townhouse. Can get Nimitz area in Sunnyvale for this.

    I'm in a similar position. Starting off my chatting with some realtors and brokers to get pre-qualififactions that'll help to guide my search.
