Hello Alexandra, yes it will be noisy with trains going by daily from time to time. You will get more and more used to it as time goes by if you live there long. You will want to go by the property from time to time when trains go by.

There is usually a sound wall between but not always or the windows are more sound proof. You may not hear the train from inside but may feel a little rumbling as it goes by. Those properties are usually reflecting a slightly lower price than other choices too.

In SFBA there is not much choice, most will sell quickly even the building shakes. Sometimes there is a trade off as there are way more people want to move in than what is available.

Even those near a noisy freeway has multiple bidders.

Hello houseguy9, You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your need to know your qualifying perimeters and maximum payment you are looking to achieve.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You may consider from as low as 5% down Jumbo with a minimum 720 fico score from 424k up to 1.5 million and 10% down from a minimum 680 fico score and up to 2.5 million.

Theses links should have the answers to any questions you may have on schools:

The existing inventory of 3bd 2ba condos of 1,462sf built in 2013 start from 918k in 95035 zip code. The existing older single family homes start from 835k for 3bd 2ba 1,168sf updated but built in 1963 in 95035 zip code.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

There a a new school being built right there too, mccandless elementary school, opening in 2018. And The Fields,

Your mother's poor credit (the car getting repossessed) will certainly impact her ability to get a home loan. Talk to a lender to find out just how poor her credit is, and what you can do about it.

A repossession can seriously damage her credit.

Milpitas will be what Sunnyvale was 10-15 years ago. Like it or not that will be the ideal residential for people one head north and other taking 237 to Silicon Valley.

Regardless of the STW odor it has been there before WW 2. You can close your windows or pay more head other neighborhood. 95035 is still an affordable neighborhood for newer homes. But hurry, not long
