The hottest housing markets have one determining factor in common: employment opportunities. Cities with jobs in growing fields draw incoming residents in droves—and none is more in-demand currently than technology. Which markets will tech next make its mark in?

A recent survey by Modis, an IT staffing services provider, identified the housing markets on set to be transformed by technology. The top 5:

1. Chicago

2. Houston

3. Boston

4. Denver

5. Philadelphia 

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. RISMedia Tracking Snippet *** Do Not Remove *** End RISMedia Tracking Snippet
