Unless you can tell the future, it's hard to say. The attached link is to a very comprehensive calculator that can help you consider all the variables. I've found it useful.

A seven year moves gives you plenty of time to see a great return on your purchase- especially if you want Brooklyn :) Long term appreciation is high in these parts. As Gail mentioned, 5-7 years is the average for most so you will be right on track when you are ready to upgrade.

National statistics show that all 1st time buyers move within 5-7 years. What are your needs now? Don't worry about tomorrow...fill your needs for today and the next 5-7 years.
