Buda is a small, 2.5 square mile suburb of Austin located in Hays County about 30 minutes (19 miles) due south of Downtown. Residents of Buda enjoy a safe, scenic place to live, full of cozy neighborhoods – spanning a wide spectrum of values – only minutes from the Hill Country and near enough to Austin to enjoy the culture and entertainment scene. Many families choose Buda for the highly regarded Hays CISD public schools; still others because it offers more affordable homes and a lower cost of living than Austin city proper. It is estimated the city grew by 103% from 2000-2010 and growth from 2010-2020 is set to outpace the previous decade. The push for development along the I-35 corridor brought in the very popular Cabela’s, along with several other big box retailers and is one of the largest contributors to the city’s sales tax revenue increase. With its superior educational opportunities, easy commute into downtown Austin and relaxed life style is a “must see” for every prospective home buyer considering the Austin metro area.
