Seems very risky in my perspective. I would negotiate this as part of your terms

The process is new firm will transfer your H1B based on approved I-140 and you will get extension for next 3 years. Firm has to restart GC process from start but they can use your PD now to answer your question they can start the process anytime after you join the firm or they can use your approved I-140 and keep applying extension until your PD near to current that time they can start GC process again and can file AOS along with that. BTW what is your PD?

Atleast for next 1 year it will never become current 😀

Rising mortgage rates are cited as one of the causes of a coming recession. When recession comes, to spur the economy, the fed will reverse course and decrease rates, in turn causing mortgage rates to also drop. So, is it better to buy now and refinance down the road? Or wait it out and buy later? I doubt that home prices will fall (ny/nj area) during that time, maybe just slow down to normal growth (3-5% per yr). Thoughts?
