Larger homes with better kitchens are what transferees want most in a new home, according to the Cartus Global Relocation Corporation.
Cartus polled 267 real estate brokers in the Cartus Broker network about what their inbound homebuyers want in their new place. Their response?

As for the home itself, Cartus brokers say clients request:
Homeowners who are still employed but transferring, report a preference for homes in quality school districts and with short commutes.
On Cape Cod, as more and more baby boomers set their sites on retiring, smaller and older homes are a large part of the charm.
