You have valid thoughts like any other buyers would. However, It is extremely difficult to predict a market 4 years later.
Based on current market conditions, home prices are going up for sure.
Also, Center Place is almost new development and I do not see the price drop in near future.
In my opinion, I would buy then rent for 4 years.
Besides, the question about selling in 4 years,you should have about 5 to 7 years time horizon for any investment to make sense. You can talk more to your financial planner. I do have a metro model i.e. 3 br 2 ba with 1 car garage listed. The address is 3028 Edward Stec Blvd. Please feel free to reach me if you have any question.
Now that part one is answered, your main question of should you buy or rent is a good one. The main factor in this area is your income. If you are making over $75,000, I would say purchasing is a much better idea as you get the tax write off. If you are looking to rent a similar type unit, you are going to pay somewhere in the $2000 range. $2000 x 4 years = $96,000 in rent with little tax benefits. Mortgage at $2,000 x 4 years = $96,000 with LARGE tax savings. If you are in the 29% tax bracket, you are looking at about $6,000 PER YEAR in tax savings. Yes you have closing costs on purchasing (~3% of purchase price), and commissions on selling side (~4-7%), but you still come out ahead if prices stay stagnant.
