Raleigh, NC Real Estate, Raleigh Area and Community Information: 

History of Raleigh NC Real Estate

Raleigh Real Estate started as an early version of a planned city. It was designed around the state capitol at its center. It was incorporated as a city in 1792. The city suffered little structural damage during the civil war, but they had to rebuild emotionally along with the rest of the south afterwards. In 1959 Raleigh’s North Carolina State University was nicknamed the Research Triangle along with Duke University in Durham and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Chapel Hill. The jobs created by the triangle brought many more people to Raleigh Properties. The city is still the state capitol today and enjoys a rich cultural, educational, and artistic environment.
