Like many other small towns in the Austin area, Buda is experiencing a period of rapid growth and it looks like the trend will continue for years to come. If you want variety in housing options, though, Buda might be the right move for you.
Located about 15 miles south of downtown Austin along the I-35 Corridor, Buda actually is in Hays County. The estimated population in 2013 was 10,209, an increase of about 324 percent since 2000, making it one of Austin’s fastest growing suburbs. The city is 2.41 sq. miles in size.
If you’re looking for the charm of a quiet small town, Buda’s recently restored Old Town offers that. If you want more of a traditional American suburb, Buda has that, too. And, if you want room to spread out and something with a rural feel to it, you still can find attractive acreage within the city limits.
The estimated median house or condo value in Buda was $192,156 in 2012, compared to $109,600 in 2000.
Established in 1881 as a small railroad stop serving the International and Great Northern Railroad, Buda has grown from its humble beginnings to a thriving community that stays true to its small town charm and heritage.
One downside of living in Buda, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 33.54 minutes every day commuting to work.
Major employers in Buda include Texas Lehigh Cement, Centex Materials, CTX Builders Supply, Chatleff Controls, Nighthawk Foods, and Cabela’s. Buda’s historical downtown area has been recently renovated, and local merchants are using the local “BIG” grant program to fix up their storefronts.
Buda’s small town atmosphere is appealing to many, explaining the area’s growth over the last several years. The city is planning for the future, though, by managing growth and raising development standards.
