Real Estate

Real estate is a broad term that can relate to home buyers, investors and even us travelers. Let us look at some ways to save money, or make money when it comes to real estate.

If you are traveling in an RV, then your real estate is cruising with you down the road. But sooner or later, you have to park it. We save money various ways by planning our travels and mapping them out. We use a few websites that help us along the way.

One is We have used this site extensively during our travels. It provides a list of places to boondock, as well as having some spots with full hookups! We stayed in a small park with 20 or so spaces in Dumas, TX. They had electric, water and a dump station! We've also used this site to find spots in Indiana, West Virginia and several places along many highways. So check it's free!

Do you like casinos? Try this website: Boondock in a secure casino parking lot. Or find great deals at some casinos that have full hookups. We have stayed at casinos in Oklahoma, Iowa, South Dakota and Indiana. This is another way to save money. We even received credits to gamble with when we signed up for the casino club card.

Would you prefer to stay at a campground at 50% off the regular price? Then try Passport America. We joined nearly a year ago and have used this membership so many times! The membership paid for itself within the first 2 times that we used it! We have used Passport America 16 times within the last year and have saved several hundred dollars!

How about a way to check out real estate markets in various places before you get there? What's going on with the real estate market in Honolulu?  Do you prefer the east coast, maybe Myrtle Beach? Or maybe somewhere out west, like Portland? You can find out what's going on at these locations, and so many more, by checking out the website gives you an up-to-date look at the current status of real estate markets across the country. There are current and archived reports, blogs and various editorial contributors to be found here. Take a look at your area...or better yet, that place of the country that you really want to live!

Thanks to all of our new and loyal readers for stopping by. we hope that maybe just one of our tips will personally help you! Good luck....another article coming soon!


  1. Even better is to set your RV up with solar panels and batteries so that you don't need to pay for an RV park at all. And, use to park on homeowners property or driveway for free as an alternative to RV parks.

  2. I guess I'm dumb, but I didn't get what the real estate market watch had to do with the rest of the post which focused on frugal means for parking your RV.
    Not trying at all to sound smart alecy, just would like someone to fill in the gaps of my lacking understanding (i'm not an RVer yet, still contemplating)
    Thanks tho for the other sites pertaining to frugal parking!

  3. Zoemorn, you're not was just a segway. In an earlier blog, we spoke about a way to make money at "Blogvertise". Well, that real estate blurb earned us $20 :) So if you ever see something that may not seem to fit, it's probably something for Blogvertise.

  4. Very Interesting blog. I am now a follower. I thought you might want to check out Paradox Principles as well.
    All the best, Bob West
