Buffers Around Only Selected Features?

I am working with a file with approximately 6,000 records, including a field for property type.  I want to first select individual property types, then create a buffer around only those points, and finally analyze the proximity of the selected points.  I can???t seem to see how to buffer only selected points.  Do I have to create a subset file for each property type and then run the buffer routines?  Or is there a shortcut through which I can retain the full file?  Thanks.
