    Buda Reviews

    1 review
    This town is extremely family friendly, cheap, and gives many good options for living. The only problem is its lack of job opportunity. The nearest places to get jobs are 20-45 minutes away. If you're willing to buy a 15,000 square foot house for 50,000 and commute for long distances, then this is the place to be. Real estate is cheap, and living cost is low. There is one bar here, though its not very nice. They have a wonderful church here though. Its not very diverse, as many rural towns are not.
