From its roots as a 19th-century tobacco town to its modern-day revitalization as a hipster hangout, Durham is a wonderful, diverse and quirky place to live. Home to Duke University, founded in 1924 by the Duke family (which made its fortune in the tobacco trade), Durham has grown to become the 4th-largest city in North Carolina, with more than 263,000 residents.

With its proximity to Research Triangle Park, Duke University and Duke Medical Center, Durham homes are a popular option for those who want a quick commute to work. The city has a great selection of homes at every price point, with single-family and townhomes being the most popular properties. Durham is also a magnet for great chefs and a paradise for food lovers.
