If you like to travel but aren’t sure where to begin your research, travel blogs allow you to be a voyeur and tag along as writers review destinations and amenities on their bucket list. You can learn to cook gourmet food over an open flame or view spectacular photography taken by regular travelers.

1. Carnets de Traverse

Follow the English version on Instagram to gain access to secret places off the beaten path of tourist destinations. The photography is evocative and creates a longing to follow in the bloggers footsteps. After reading their content, unknown places come to life, and you find yourself checking out flight and accommodation expenses.

2. Fresh Off the Grid

Learn how to make mulled wine and beef jerky while you’re camping out and seeing the country. Megan McDuffie and Michael Van Vliet travel across the country in a beat-up Ford Focus. Yet, they produce inspired recipes for campers and backpackers that make cook out food seem gourmet. This site can save you a lot of money without going hungry on the road.

 

3. Meraviglia Paper

These bloggers live in Northern Italy, and right away you can see that the site is unique. Written in newsletter type and presented in a three-column layout, the Meraviglia Paper reads like a tri-fold brochure. Refreshing photography includes local bakers holding baguettes and chickens digging up breakfast in a museum district. The tasteful writing and low-key vibe recommend the authors as people to ask for advice on where to go and what to eat there.

4. This Is the Place I Was Telling You About

If website names could win awards, this one would get a nod for originality and effectiveness. You want to read it. The bloggers whisper in your ear regarding travel tips for international destinations. Find the best restaurants and boutiques in remote cities and admire self-portraits against tropical sunsets, as the Texan couple who writes the blog regale you with their hypnotic storytelling. They shoot their pics with film and laser in on fun details, like where to get great coffee or find camera film abroad.

5. The Blond Abroad

While this site is a bit commercial, the writer is a California native living the dream. She quit a corporate job to travel the world on a budget, often alone. This is one of many blogs that show solo travelers how to have the time of their lives in exotic locales. The photography is realistic, and the page presents like an open diary of places Kiersten and guest bloggers have visited.

Who pays the transfer fees in a transaction involving an HOA?

Some homeowners associations charge fees for transferring the ownership of property from a seller to a buyer. Paragraph C, Fees, of the Addendum for Property Subject to Mandatory Membership in a Property Owners Association (TAR 1922, TREC 36-8) covers that cost.

It states that except for fees covered in Paragraphs A, D, and E, the buyer will pay all costs and fees associated with the property transfer. Paragraph C also contains a blank that caps the buyer’s responsibility at a certain dollar amount, after which the seller will pay the balance.

Your TAR forms library includes 126 forms available exclusively to Texas REALTORS® in addition to 32 forms approved by TREC for use by license holders. See them all at texasrealestate.com

Must a seller disclose a murder at the property?

According to the Texas Property Code, sellers aren’t required to disclose deaths on the property that resulted from natural causes, suicide, or an accident unrelated to the property’s condition.

However, murder does not fall into these categories. The Deceptive Trade Practices Act may require the disclosure of murders unrelated to a condition of the property as material facts a buyer would want to know before entering into a transaction.

TAR’s Seller’s Disclosure Notice includes a question about deaths other than those caused by natural causes, suicide, or an accident unrelated to the property’s condition.

History of Keller, TX

One of the best-kept secrets in Tarrant County, Keller is the perfect blend of small city elements with all the comforts of the big city lifestyle. Settled in the early 1850s and connected to Fort Worth by the Texas Pacific Railroad, the city takes its namesake from John C Keller a famous Texan railroad foreman.

History of Keller, TX:

Growing from familiar wild western roots, Keller is now called home to more than 42,000 residents which makes it one of the smaller cities in the state of Texas. Originally settled as a railroad town named Athol, the settlement became the village of Keller in 1882.

Keller began to prosper almost immediately due to the rich landscape that the plentiful hunting and farming communities would be built around. The proximity to the Trinity River along with the vast fields make it a perfect candidate for cattle and farmers alike.

These goods and raw materials sparked the growth as Keller became a central hub of tradable goods. Just four years after the village of Keller came into existence, the Keller post office came into existence and has served the greater northeast corner of Tarrant County since then.

Education in the growing community began at the corner of Bear Creek Road and Elaine Street as a subscription school educating the early residents of Keller. Having moved over the years and watching the evolution of the city, today this facility is now the Keller Education Center.

One of the big reasons for the growth of Keller is it’s continued investment in education. Located in the middle of some of the major hubs of education in Texas, Keller is located nearby The University of Texas at Arlington, Texas Woman’s University and the University of North Texas.

Today Keller is growing and rapidly expanding as one of the most desired places to move, making Keller Real Estate a fast-paced segment of Tarrant County business. Ethnic diversity and backed by a rich and interesting history, there are many historic landmarks of Keller that remind folks of where they’ve come from.

Working in conjunction with the Tarrant County College District in Fort Worth, the Keller Independent School District has 41 campuses serving more than 37,500 students. Corporations and economic growth has put Keller real estate on the map as far as desirability is concerned.
