The thing is, I still eventually want to buy something. And if I were absolutely sure I’d be there for more than five years, I’d be tempted to buy, even now. But I don’t have the job security — unless they have tenure, nobody does– to be sure. Buying a house is a bet, it seems to me. And I am not a gambler.
Where do you see yourself in five years? Can you say with confidence that you’ll be able to pay the same amount of money for housing?
