North Carolina has always been a state of rich history and tourism, but with so many pop culture references and celebrities coming from the state in recent years, it seems to be garnering, even more, attention.
Between 10,000 – 12,000 years ago, the first Native Americans inhabited the State, with over 30 tribes settling in the area. The area was originally inhabited by Native Americans of Mississippian culture who were known for their strong trade networks and for building complex cities. These Native Americans were succeeded by other tribes who made contact with the Europeans. These tribes include; Roanoke, Chowanoke, Pamlico, Coree, Machapunga, Cape Fear Indians, Cherokee, Meherrin, Catawba, Saponi, Waxhaw and Waccamaw among many others. The first direct contact with the Europeans was made when Juan Pardo led a troop to this area in 1567 and built the Fort San Juan. The Spanish were unable to settle in this area which would later fall under the British colonization in the 1580’s. Although these colonies did not succeed, permanent settlers from Virginia had begun to move towards the state, which eventually became a British colony known simply as 'Carolina.'
It was the first state to gain independence from the British in 1776. This state was formerly known as the North Carolina Colony or the Province or Royal Colony of North Carolina. Settlers started flooding this are after the end of Yamasee and Tuscarora wars which had been a significant barrier to the settlement. The Catawba and the Cherokee were the most powerful tribes, but they were neutralized through the French and Indian War.
With an estimated population of about 400,000 people, North Carolina officially joined the Union as the 12th state. This state covers an area of 53,818 square miles which makes it the 28th largest state in the United States and with a population of over 10 million peopel calling it home, it now ranks as the 9th most populous US state. Within the state, there are 100 counties in total, with some of the largest cities being Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro, Durham, and Winston-Salem. It is also known as the Tar Heel State or the Old North State. Its official colors are red and blue and its Latin motto of ‘Esse quam-videri’ aptly means “To be, rather than to seem.”
The state is located in the southeastern part of the United States. This state shares its borders with Virginia, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee and the Atlantic Ocean. NC falls into three geographical sections which include the Piedmont, which is a plateau, the Atlantic Coastal Plain, which is mainly a flat area, and the Appalachian Mountains, which is the mostly raised with many peaks and valleys.
The climate here is subtropical and humid, resulting in short, mild winters and long, warm summers. The state also experiences defined seasons and transitional periods, with a distinctive spring and fall. Much of the state's mild temperate is a result of the Appalachians serving as a 'shield' against the storms and low temperatures of the Midwest.
Fort Raleigh National Historical Site is one of the earliest sites that marks the failed attempt of the Spanish to settle the area in the late 16th century. This historic park also houses the Elizabethan Gardens as well hosts a drama, dubbed “The Lost Colony” held every summer. Activities such as hiking trails and wildlife and bird watching are also common within this park.
The Guilford Courthouse National Military Park is a site that was used during the Revolutionary War and features monuments of the war veterans.

The Wright Brothers National Memorial was made to commemorate Orville and Wilbur Wright, who made the first airplane at Kitty Hawk. Other notable national parks here are; the Cape Lookout National Seashore, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site.
The state's capital is the city of Raleigh which is famously known as the ‘City of Oaks’ due to the numerous oak trees within its limits.

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. This state primarily follows the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) methodology when surveying the properties. Since this state 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 title theory state. This simply means that the raw title of the property will remain in a trust 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 Deed of Trust.
If for some reason the borrower cannot repay the home loan, then the lender can typically avoid having to go through the court system. They do this by merely starting a non-judicial foreclosure which typically only takes about 110 days to complete. However, when necessary, the lender may need to instead go to court and start a more lengthy and costly judicial foreclosure. The laws that pertain to the N.C. foreclosure process are mostly found in NC Statutes Chapter 45 in §45-4 to §45-21.38.
However, if you are a landlord that needs to evict a non-paying tenant, then you would need to reference the N.C. statutes of Chapter 42: Landlord and Tenant instead. Whereas if you are looking to become a real estate agent, then you would just deal directly with the NC Real Estate Commission, which oversees all the licensing of the agents and most of the implementation and enforcement of the North Carolina 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 75 hours of approved NC real estate courses, successfully pass the written state exam, pass certain criminal background checks, be sponsored by a licensed N.C. real estate broker, and pay the various required licensing fees.
With such a broad mixture of historical culture and modern day interests, it's no surprise that this state is so well loved and has existed through the years to become one of the most sought-after destinations for tourists and residents to call it home.
