Trends do change. It appears that what was expected or desired in the 70s, 80s and 90,s is no longer in vogue today. I think more hard surfaces are all the rage, as long as the colors a ... more

Do freight trains run on the tracks next to Woodrow in the Crestview area?
No! Buying a home backing to a RR track is not a good idea (unless it is being sold for VERY little) I don't care what runs on it. Sorry, my advice is move on and find a better choice.

How safe /annoying to live near rail tracks in North Central Austin?
If resale is important to you, yes run the other way. When considering resale - the question you should ask is - will this run off buyers in the future? My opinion is that it will.

Austin Lamb answered:
How or why do I have current or past delinquency with one or more of my creditors if I just got a brand new ssn for the first time in my life?
I'm not sure how you got a new SSN? Your bad debts will stick with you even if you change your name, or move, or even if you get a new social.
