Yes, it's still possible to buy (well, make an offer on) a single-family home in the Mission for under one million bucks. 808 South Van Ness is a 3-bed, 2.5-bath home that just landed on the market asking $998,000. The 1900 Victorian looks all its years on the outside, but its interiors were "completely revitalized" just this year to meet today's modern standards, like recessed lighting and an open floor plan. But hey, there's still bay windows and built-ins, so it's maintaining some of its original architectural charm. There's also a 2-car garage.
