In general, leases are going up and becoming more expensive in most areas. But each market is different. I would make the move when you are ready and not worry too much about timing because it's really impossible to say. In the past year alone lease rates for homes in my area of NW Austin have went up by as much as 20% or more from last year.
Hope this helps.
