I'd be interested to see some homes in Plugerville and Buda. Wouldn't it be nice to get in on a town that will grow before the housing prices are unreachable to me! I'd need at least a 3br and definitely w/ a garage...I'll keep posted on the real estate....

I was hoping to hear from folks who currently reside there. I think that is a very skewed opinion of the town, and it proves that you haven't spent much time there.

Thanks for the bump either way. I'm ooking forward to some real responses and discussion tomorrow.

I dont live in Buda but had family that used to live there. I'd say its a nice small town that is rapidly growing there is alot of new homes and apartments being built.

It's amazing how many houses they can fit on a sliver of land, all the while keeping everything around it relatively desolate.

Buda really needs to develop its local economy more and not depend on retail so much.

Widening FM 1626 as an alternative to IH-35 for commuters heading into Austin IS NOT economic development, just a false substitute.

Traffic from Buda s-u-c-k-s. I didn it once never again. You come in either I-35 or Brodie. Youre better off living in the austin cityh limits or having a job in buda.

Buda is only 16 miles South of Downtown Austin, TX, however most of that trip is in heavy traffic on IH-35. Still, there are lots of hospitals and medical clinics in S. Austin that would be closer. See the map Buda, TX to Austin, TX 78701 - Google Maps

Buda is a decent area, very suburban, but close to some really nice hill country.

As an ex-land surveyor I have to say this...Please take another look at the map! http://g.co/maps/4j6q9

Strictly speaking, by the compass, Buda is Southwest of downtown Austin, more correctly it is SSW. Bee Caves is slightly NorthWest of downtown Austin, WNW to be more correct. The fact that the major N-S streets and IH-35 run from NE to SW throws everyone's directions off.

My daughter lives in Meadows of Buda and I babysit sometimes. It takes me about 20 minutes to get to her house going east on Wm Cannon and hopping on I-35 South. Sometimes I go down Manchaca, turn left and take a small road that comes out in Buda then take the access road to her development. I am going opposite the traffic heading into town so these numbers are not typical of a work commute. I do find Manchaca is much faster for me than Brodie.
