Also, every property is different, and for one reason or another, any given property may not sell right away. This means that your property may possibly be on the market during any market influxes that occur in the near future....and that gets back to the point of your ability to wait it out long enough for a real difference to occur.
Good luck in any case...
If you are in great shape financially and can get a monthly rent close to your monthly expenses of your home (mortgage, taxes, insurance) I'd say rent it. It's an excellent way to preserve the money you've put into your house and would not see if you sold it today, plus grow your future equity. To get a mortgage for your new home, your lender will want to see a signed lease - so you'll have get your tenant before you can make an offer otherwise.
If you do this be sure you screen your tenants carefully - hire a realtor to list your rental (fees vary, typically equal to one month's rent) who will do the screening/credit check for you.
Good luck in whatever you decide!
As you know, it is all relative if you are also buying at the same time as selling.
