Good afternoon, Mike:
The process of patenting land in North Carolina was not complex. Anyone wanting to patent land submitted an application (also called a land entry) to a land office. The land officer then issued a warrant. Land officers included the secretary of state (1669–1776), the agents of Earl Granville (1748–76), or the county entry taker (1778–present). The warrant was taken to a surveyor who surveyed the land and sketched a plat (map) of the claim. The plat was then filed in the land office or, after 1777, recorded by the county register of deeds, and a patent for the land was issued and recorded. Land grants and related indexes are available at the North Carolina State Archives (see [North Carolina Archives, Libraries, and Societies]). If you write to the archives, furnish the full name of the grantee and the county in which the grant was made. Detailed instructions for requesting information by mail, fax or online, visit this section of the archive’s website www.archives.ncdcr.gov/mail.htm. The Granville grants and other miscellaneous papers have been indexed and can be accessed by MARS, a database of the North Carolina State Archives online at mars.archives.ncdcr.gov/BasicSearch.aspx; the Search Room at the archives has a card catalog of grants of deeds. The FHL has this collection on 522 reels of microfilm. If you appreciate an answer, please give thumbs up. For the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click. ... more

Good evening!

Great question but it all depends ... Location, condition, etc. The market is very hot right now and in fact, most Agents cannot find a home for their Buyers. If you can provide me more specific information, I would be able to help you with real data.

Best,
Debbie

doodlesmith,

this is something you have to go down to the county courthhouse and look up the records for it. Unfortuantely online it will not go back that far for a realtor to be able to see who owned it back then...Most title companies only require a 30 year history when a house is being sold to follow the title back so I am not sure if you won the house that the title insurance comapny went back that far as well..

By law, realtors are not allowed to discuss neighborhood crime and absolutely cannot pronounce whether a neighborhood is safe or not. You can get area crime stats on the general area. Another proactive thing you can do is drive around a neighborhood you are interested in and stop and speak to neighbors - they'll tell you anything! As far as the taxes, Charlotte's property taxes are what they are. Are they worth it? I like having reliable police and fire protection, so I would say yes. Best success! ... more

My crystal ball is not working these days, not sure anyone's is either. The future is a mystery to us all. If your appraisal came in much lower you could argue it with better comps if you can find some. Did you have your Realtor do a market valuation for you before you selected the listing price? ... more

The market conditions in Charlotte are improving.. But like anywhere in the country it is subjective. Certain neighborhoods are farign better than others and same with areas of charlotte.

I have ntoiced since February a large uptick in the amount of buyers out looking at homes both from a buyer's agent perspective as well as from a listing agent standpoint. Showings are up on all my homes in comparable neighborhoods from last year.

I track showings through the showing service and based on that in the price range in a specific neighborhood. Based on that you can get an idea of how many people are looking at homes over a given period of time. The traffic for my listigns are up anywhere between 30% and as high as 60% on a couple fo my homes.

I have also noticed the price point has either stabilized or slightly increased in those neighborhoods from last year as well.

Noone can predict the future; but based on thise trends I would say if it continues like it is we will see an uptick in prices latter part of this year and continue through next year.

Tax values are based on homes with comparable square footage and room and on similair lot sizes. Adjustments are made for larger or smaller homes accordingly...

However; market values take into account the condition of the home. What updates have been done to the home and how it is cared for. Also comparable neighborhood sales factor in. it is like an old adage "a home is only worth what someone will pay for it".

And a home that has been updated is worth more than one that is not...

wwjd,

Are you looking for certain homes in Pullengreen or Piper Glen? The reason they're showing as Piper Glen is because Trulia doesn't actually show the subdivision of the home, they just list the nieghborhood as the general area - that being, Pullengreen is in the "Piper Glen area" of Charlotte.

Pleaes contact me directly with questions about the area/market or if you would like a password protected access to run your own searches with more in depth information.
