About the community of Buda

There is a lot of beauty to take in along the I-35 corridor leading into Hays County. About 17 miles south of Austin, stark in the middle of Hays, lays the city of Buda. It is one of the fastest-growing communities in the state, but take a walk down Buda’s main street and the town’s small-town character is revealed. It is also close to San Antonio. Buda is a bedroom community that merges the opportunities of a metropolitan expanse with the relaxed pace of a rural enclave.
The community has a population of 13,326 people and two constituent neighborhoods connected within the city limits, making Buda the 187th largest community in Texas. Most of the properties were built relatively recently. Real estate in the region is among the most prized in the state, but because of Texas’ affordable prices Buda house values are still well under the more expensive real estate elsewhere in the United States. The average listing price is in the low $200’s, and the median sales price is in the $140’s. The city of Buda sits in the 78610 zip code, and it is served by the Hays Consolidated ISD school district. Students from Buda and nearby Kyle, Texas attend Jack C. Hays High School and Lehman High School. High school football games at Bob Shelton Stadium (home of the Hays High Rebels) are a very popular community pastime.

The Economy of Buda

Construction and new listings are often taken to indicate a strong economy, so it’s clear that Buda’s listings are attracting an influx of new residents, jobs and other amenities. The average Buda household has a median income of $60,258. Buda has a nice mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs to offer its residents. Many people in the city work in administrative support, management occupations and sales of jobs. There are more people working in computers and math in Buda than 95% of the cities in America. Additionally, Buda is one of only four cities in all of Texas that is part of the Film Friendly Texas Program. A family of four in Buda has an average annual income of $88, 108.

The lifestyle and population of Buda

Because Buda is not over-populated and has less college students, renters and young children making up the population, the city is quieter than you would expect a growing region to be. Still, it is a very car-oriented city, with nearly all of the people in the city driving to work on most days. This automobile domination has led to a large amount of strip centers in the city. Buda is a very ethnically-diverse area. While Caucasians make up the majority of the city, there is also a sizable portion of the population that describes itself as Hispanic or African-American. Some important ancestor ethnicities that define the area include German, English, Irish and Scots-Irish.
Several well-known neighborhoods are in Buda: Bradfield Village, Coves of Cimarron, Elliot Ranch, Garlic Creek, Leisurewoods and Ruby Ranch. Buda is a beautiful, affordable place for people relocating to Austin.
