When do you intend to leave Connecticut?
What motivated you to make a real estate
investment outside of Connecticut?
Respondents ranked eight possible reasons in order of
importance. In 2013, the top four reasons were "state income
tax considerations," "climate considerations," "property tax
considerations," and "Connecticut's economy." These top
four reasons were unchanged from the 2012 survey.
The other reasons listed included "family considerations,"
"state succession/estate tax considerations," "career/
employment opportunity," and "vacation/second home
purchase opportunity."
Why have you elected to remain in
Connecticut?
As questions 1 and 2 clearly show, not everyone is planning
to leave Connecticut. Respondents were asked to rank
five possible reasons to stay in order of importance; the
overwhelming top two responses both years were "my
family is here" and "my practice is here."
The other possible reasons were "I love Connecticut," "it's
too much of a hassle to move," and "I have no financial
concerns about remaining."
Respondents were also asked what factors, if any, would
change their decision to remain in Connecticut. The top two
reasons both years were "a change in my family's situation"
and "retirement."
