Worth buying a home right now? I’m In the MW & breakeven on a townhome vs renting apt is ~3 yrs. Mortgage (+taxes) vs rent ~=. The caveat: can wait 1 yr where supply MIGHT catch up a little to flatten out this crazy market while interest rates still haven’t crept up to that 4-5% average.

Or i can buy now and take the risk of selling lower in 5 yr

Any recommendations on how to pivot effectively without encountering severe financial setbacks?
