Why don't you just view the home with your agent during rush hour and see for yourself. Everyone had different tollerances. I know if my neighbors dog is barking erradically, I can either get angry that he's left it out or just turn on some nice music!
There's always a logical answer. If you can't find one, you should continue looking elsewhere.
I am very familiar with the area and have worked with many builders/renters out there.

Best to you!
As a resident of the Rice Military neighborhood, I can say that no interstate noise comes into our area. However, there are some things to note about living along the Washington Corridor. I am a board member of the Rice Military Civic Club and can offer much advice about what's to come and what's happening in our area. Please contact me if you'd like to discuss. Look forward to hearing from you!

If you are seeing homes on the web, click on the map and see if there is a "bird view". This will show you the home from about 500ft up and it will let you see if the train tracks or busy road are near by.
Let us know if we can help. There is newer construction as well as 1920's and 1930's bungalows in this general area between downtown Houston and Memorial Park.
