Welcome Home to Buda Texas
We've been named by Channel 42 K-eye TV as "The Buda Area MLS Expert".
I happen to live in Kyle which is just a 'bit' further south on I35. About 7 years ago I did all my grocery shopping in Buda as Kyle didn't have a grocery. And when I don't feel like cooking (which is pretty often), you can find me at Garcias getting a nice meal or when I have a craving for a big hamburger I still run up to Buda for Dan's Hamburgers.
The two cities share a lot, including the school district, the Performing Arts Center, the YMCA and a whole lot more. So I'm familiar with this growing community. It has been growing by leaps and bounds. It's only a short distance from Austin so many find it to be a great option.
Where is Buda located? Anything special about it?
Though growing in size, Buda still has that small town feel. Like Kyle it's only a hop, skip and a jump south of Austin. You just head south on I35 from downtown Austin and keep going until you come to exits 221. You'll see a McDonalds on the East side of I35, and HEB on the West side. If you head west past the HEB, then the Super Walmart and the Drugstore you'll soon find yourself in 'downtown' Buda. There's a bit more to downtown Buda than downtown Kyle, but it's still pretty small. There are few antique shops, a few restaurants, the city library and some local businesses. But don't let the small size fool you as there are a lot of committed businesses and plans for this fair city.
With the city of Kyle immediately to the south growing as well, this community is soon going to have more options coming in the next 1-3 years. (And as I mentioned in the Kyle section...Buda is only a few minutes further than Kyle from the outlet mall of San Marcos. This mall was named by the TV show "The View" as one of the world's (yes WORLD's) top three shopping destinations. It's only about 25 minutes or so south on I35 at exit #200. (For more info on what stores are in the mall you can check out Austin Area Shopping.)
From a real estate standpoint all of this growth means a lot to the values of the homes in the area. People like convenience. They like to be near their places of work and they will be more inclined to purchase in a community that has more amenities, shops etc. So with all of the jobs that will be added to support these new businesses there are going to folks wanting to live near their place of work.
What about the Schools?
As for the schools in the area. Buda, like Kyle, is in the Hays Consolidated School District. My two youngest daughters attended Hays High school, and now my granddaughter attends Hays. I have actually been impressed with the programs the schools offer. They have a great band program, and many great elective for students to choose from. Academically I have been impressed with their AP program. Like Hays, Lehman is soaring academically and has great programs to offer their students. What a great school district!!
