A recent survey by Modis, an IT staffing services provider, identified the housing markets on set to be transformed by technology. The top 5:
Fifty-one percent of those surveyed ranked Chicago as the top tech hot spot of the future. The Windy City is likely to attract younger professionals who have worked in technology 5 years or less, according to the survey.
Houston and Boston ranked second and third, respectively, with 47 percent and 43 percent of the vote. Houston is likely to attract a range of professionals, from those who have not completed a college degree to those who have worked in technology for more than 10 years. Boston, like Chicago, is likely to attract younger professionals, aged 26-34.
Denver, which has seen home prices appreciate at an above-average rate since the recession, was ranked fourth at 36 percent. (Denver, as well, was recently named the No. 1 emerging tech hub by Homes.com.) Philadelphia, at 31 percent, also made the top five.
Other up-and-coming technology-driven markets, according to the survey, include Dallas, Detroit and Omaha.
