Kyle Homes For Sale
Kyle has been one of the fastest growing cities in Texas this century, with around 30,000 residents. Originally founded in 1880 by settlers from nearby Blanco and Mountain City, namesake Fergus Kyle and the family of David Moore donated 200 acres of land for the town when the International and Great Northern Railroad built a line from Austin to San Antonio. The first Kyle home lots were sold in October 1880 at an auction held beneath a Live Oak tree at 204 Sledge Street. Today, Kyle straddles I-35 in between Austin and San Marcos and is just south of Buda. Its booming population has led to much increased business development over the last decade, and its quality of life appeals to many homeowners. In addition, many people who work in Austin live in Kyle due to its relative affordability and small-town feel.
Even though most of the neighborhoods in Kyle are relatively new, homes tend to be traditional, with an emphasis on ranch-style homes. Neighborhoods such as Plum Creek offer nostalgic, white picket fence homes. Kyle also offers ranches and homes on acreage lots. Homes in Kyle generally are less expensive than their Austin counterparts
