I am debating between whether to go ahead and buy a condo in Harmony (buildingby DR Horton)-Milpitas

right infront of Great Mall
price 571K 3bed 2 bath,den-1456sqft. Most sqft is on the top floor except the den which is beside the 2 car tandem garage in the lower floor. Living room is a bit small. There is a railway track right beside the property and from the bedroom patio of this condo i can see the railway track. School is Zanker elementary(8 rating/880). And there is lot of new construction around this area (mainly townhouses) and BART coming just few blocks away in 2018 for public use is proposed as-well. I want to ideally move out of this house in 5years or so; if i can afford one in a good school district (depends on house prices around that time right; who can time it). Concerns:
1. whether selling be a problem with the railway track(when i asked folks who live around Main street they said this is a
freight train track which only comes about twice a day and do not make that much of a noise) right beside it after a few years
2. And interest rates going up next year
3. and may be house prices going up

One of my buyers bought a home in Harmony.  He likes that it is convenient to many high-tech work places, shopping, and restaurants.  Also, Milpitas has uniformly good schools in all neighborhoods of the city, unlike Sunnyvale, where you have to be careful because in some cases the good school is right next to a much lower performing school.
