Today' we'll be discussing one of the contract types in real estate for today's letter, letter N.N for Non-Contingent ContractIn the heat of the market in early 2021, the buyers are writing an offer with no financing, no appraisal, and not even hiring a home inspector to do a radon test.

And just like that, it's October! Still in the middle of the Fall season, and the holidays are just right around the corner. If you're wondering what fun activity you should do before Halloween, it's hiking! In my opinion, you should go for hiking at least once in your life, as it has a lot of benefits. It keeps you healthy, it gives the adrenaline rush and the serotonin boost you need once in a while, and you get to take a lot of instagrammable shots along the way.With that being said, here's my personal top five hiking trails that you can visit this fall hiking season:1.

Most iconic history person studied in American history, and you've seen a $5 bill, chances are you've already seen this guy's picture: He's Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States of America from 1861 to 1865. He led the US through the Civil War, preserved the Union, and is notable for abolishing slavery and modernizing the U.S. economy. With his notable works and achievements as a president, he will come down as one of the icons of the American Government, gaining recognition throughout the world. The Lincoln Memorial will then be built for him in 1922, 57 years after his death.Speaking of his death, he died on April 15, 1865, at the hands of John Wilkes Booth.

Hooray for the weekend! We all deserve a well-spent weekend after the daily grind during the weekdays! As for me, love visiting various places and my interest is by tapping into nature and/or history, and looking back in time makes me wonder how it's like to live back then and appreciate the things humanity has done over the course of many years to reach where we are at right now. This not only gave me a sense of knowledge and enlightenment, but also a whole different appreciation of the evolution of human society, and just how smart and artistic anyone can be.And what better way to unwind than visiting the local museums around the DMV area.

Music has always been an important part of human history and is here to stay for a long while. Humans have displayed their appreciation for music in more ways than one, such as dancing with it, making a song cover about it, attending every concert of your favorite artist, collecting musical artifacts and memorabilia, learning how to make music of your own, and so much more. As a long-term resident of the DC metro area, I am still assumed by unique parks and recreations in and around the area. Today, I'll take a look at one of the parks that gave tribute to one of the most iconic artists of the modern music era, and one of the most prominent figures in music history, the Marvin Gaye Park in Washington, DC. About Marvin GayeMarvin Gaye was born on April 2, 1939, in Washington, DC.
