The original inhabitants of the area that developed to become the modern-day state of Connecticut were the Mohegan, Pequot, and the Golden Hill Paugusset, who all still inhabit some parts of this state. These Native American tribes engaged in hunting and gathering as well as farming. The Pequot and the Mohegan were unified and conducted their business together just before the European contact but later separated due to change of trading routes.
Adriaen Block, a Dutch explorer, was the earliest European to land in this area around 1614. Fur traders from Dutch sailed up the Versche River, later to be renamed the Connecticut River, and built a fort which they named House of Hope at the Dutch Point. John Winthrop, from England, founded the Saybrook Colony, which covered the area around the mouth of that river. Another group arrived in this area and settled at Windsor and Wethersfield and established a Colony named after the river in 1836. The nearby New Haven Colony was established two years later by John Davenport and others. These three colonies would then merge and retain the name Connecticut Colony. The Pequot War, which took place here, was the 1st major clash between the Europeans and the natives.
Connecticut was one of the original 13 colonies and was officially admitted to the Union with an estimated population of about 230,000 people on January 9, 1788, as the 5th state. It covers an area of 5,543 square miles making it the 3rd smallest US state in land area. It is estimated that about 3.6 million Nutmeggers call it home, it now ranks as the 29th most populous US state. This state is known by various nicknames such as The Constitution State, the Land of Steady Habits, the Provisions State, and the Nutmeg State. ‘He who transplanted still sustains’ is the motto of this state.
The state is located in the northeastern part of the United States and shares its borders with the states of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York and the Long Island Sound. Conn. is both within the New England region as well as being part of the tri-state area with the states of New Jersey and New York.
The Connecticut River flows through the rectangular shaped state, dividing it into two geographical regions, the Eastern Highland and the Western Highland. Other major rivers are the Thames River, the Yantic River, the Niantic River and the Farmington River. Conn. can further be divided into five areas - the Taconic section, the West New England Upland, the East New England Upland, Coastal Lowlands and the Valley Lowland, which lies right in the center of the state.
In the West lie the Appalachian Mountains which span westward while the Eastern part of the state has small hills and mountains with forests and numerous river valleys. The south of the state has rocky beaches which are like vestiges of the Ice Age and are a major tourist attraction. The upper side of this state has notable mountain ranges such as Bear Mountain and the Mount Frissell also shared with nearby Massachusetts.
The climate along the shoreline in the southern region is Subtropical humid climate while the interiors have a humid continental climate. Summers are warm and sunny with abundant sunshine, higher than the national average. Winters are relatively mild, especially along the shoreline with the average lows reaching down to about 17 degrees in January. However, the Fall paints a pretty picture with the changing colors of the Oak and Maple trees.
Conn. was the birthplace of many great initiations and inventions. For instance, the first Constitution of the U.S. was modeled directly after the state's Constitution. This is the place where the first sewing machine, revolver, and helicopter were invented. In fact, this is the very place where Mark Twain lived when he wrote Tom Sawyer and his house in Hartford is a major tourist attraction.

When buying or selling a house here, the real estate closing agent will typically use a Warranty Deed or Quit Claim Deed to convey the title of the property to the new owner. For the deed to be legally valid, the document must include the property’s exact legal description, which usually comes from language within the property’s original survey. Since Conn. used to be part of the original 13 U.S. Colonies, it primarily follows the old English real estate surveying method of using Metes and Bounds to legally describe the property.
If you aren’t paying cash for the home and are instead getting a loan to buy the real estate, then understand that this is primarily a lien theory state. This just means that the raw title of the property will remain as collateral until the lien is ultimately paid off. The most common document that is used here to secure the lender’s interest in the title is called a Mortgage.
If for some reason the borrower cannot repay the home loan, then the lender must go to court and start a judicial foreclosure which typically takes about 3 to 4 months to complete so long as it remains uncontested. During this process, the mortgage company’s attorney will also typically file a lis pendens against the property so that the public is made aware of the pending foreclosure. Once the judge rules in favor of the mortgage company, and depending on whether it was a “strict foreclosure” or a “foreclosure by sale”, the property will either revert back to the bank or will be awarded to the highest bidder at the foreclosure auction. The laws that pertain to the Conn. foreclosure process are mostly found in the General Statutes of Title 49 Chapter 846, §49-1 to §49-31j.
However, if you are a landlord here that needs to evict a non-paying tenant, then you would need to reference the statutes of Title 47a instead. Whereas if you are looking to become a real estate agent, then you would just deal directly with the CT Real Estate Commission, which oversees all the licensing of the agents and most of the implementation and enforcement of the Connecticut Real Estate Laws. Amongst other things, the main requirements to get a real estate license here would be to be at least 18 years old, complete at least 60 hours of approved real estate courses, successfully pass the written state real estate exam, pass certain criminal background checks, and pay the various required licensing fees.
The modern education system, maintained parks & preserves, excellent museums, fantastic parades & cultural events, never-ending sporting action and well-connected transport sector are just a few reasons why so many residents boast of calling the state home. Speaking of homes, if you happen to have one that you would like to sell, then we would be honored with the opportunity to purchase it from you.
