Home Builder in Austin TX

About Our Homes

Because we believe it’s important to honor our commitments, we do what we say we are going to do when we say we are going to do it – this is our philosophy. Throughout the years, our home designs have evolved to meet the changing needs of the Texas family. Our homes ‘live well’ – offering open family living spaces as well as private get-away areas. Buffington Homes are also ‘well dressed’ – boasting professionally designed exterior color schemes. We recognize that purchasing your new home is one of life’s most important decisions. Our goal is to make that decision easier by providing excellent customer care.

The largest family-owned homebuilder located in Austin, Texas

Welcome to Buffington Homes, a family-owned and operated homebuilder with projects in multiple communities across Travis County in Central Texas. We build traditional, contemporary-style, farmhouse, and Texas hill country homes for young families and first time home buyers; for growing families, empty nesters, and multi-generational families. Take a look at some of the beautiful interiors and exteriors of the homes we build in Austin and the surrounding area.

We know that buying and building a new home is a big job. That’s why it’s so important for us to work with local vendors and suppliers and walk with you through every step of the homebuilding process, up to the moment you’re handed the keys to your dream family home.

When you stop by any one of our communities and sit down with your Buffington Homes community sales manager, you will understand why our philosophy of working with local professionals is so important to us and also, beneficial to you.

For more than four decades Tom Buffington has been constructing luxury homes in some of the most sought-after, active-living communities across Central Texas. In 1987, Tom Buffington launched Buffington Homes and from the start, we’ve been locally owned and operated. We also take an enormous amount of pride in partnering with local Austin suppliers and vendors. Not only is it the fastest and friendliest way to build your home, but like all Austinites, we understand the importance of investing in our city and stimulating the local economy. It’s also the best way to provide our family of buyers, employees, and vendors with personalized, one-on-one service and quickly handle any problems that may arise.

We’re not just your builder, we’re your friends and neighbors, too.
