The windows work very well. I live in Milpitas and know the area very well. School district is good. If you need more details and need help in buying your first home, contact me.

The window technology we have today is impressive. I had an REO to sell on busy San Tomas Aquino. Standing on the front porch I though "Uh Oh. The bank wants to much for this house, the heavy traffic noise is really loud".
I walked in, shut the door, and it was very quiet. The updated windows and door made all the difference.
Your new construction home should be even more up to date. Still no one can estimate your sensitivity but yourself. I suggest you ask the sales office to turn off the music and sit there during commute hour.
Buyer Tip: When you really like a house go sit in front of it in the evening. Walk the neighborhood. Pretend you are living there already and the folks around are your neighbors.
In terms of the home prices, there's not much to say. They must reflect the market demand very well to have sold out so quickly. Indeed, we can infer that Robson underpriced their Sundrop homes to sell as fast as they did. If you're comparing these homes to older homes, you're trading off more land for quality of finishes. To get an older home of comparable size updated to Sundrop's level of finishes, you'd be looking at $1.1-1.2M in Milpitas.
Regardless, it is a good community with great floor plans. I have seen price going up with each release.
Go inside the units and listen for yourselves.
Only you can decide whether or not the noise level is acceptable. If it is, buy one. If not, donâ€™t. Donâ€™t worry about what others think â€“ make this decision based on your own preferences. You are the ones who will be living there.
Itâ€™s no secret that plenty of other buyers have decided that the levels are OK and have plunked down deposits to buy units. In fact, as stated below, if you wait much longer you will not have a chance to buy in that development: the market is red hot right now and in a market such as this, noise is not the primary issue: getting a home IS.
As Tina stated, there are buyers snapping up homes so in today's market it is not a big issues. Keep in mind in a down turn market it may be a bigger issue to buyers.
Have an amazing day!
Since the community has sold very rapidly, there are plenty of buyers who are comfortable with the location and sound isolation.
