It seems like a really temporary solution that you're looking to, so I would really agree with the guys here and suggest that it'd be best to be moving to a rented property until you can firm up your plans for 2015. At the same time, do address your budget for removals and rent prices so you don't find yourself out of sorts when you next have to pack up for relocation.

Sylvia, there are certainly pros and cons to buying vs. renting in this current market. If you are planning on moving again in 2015 then it would make more sense to rent something for now. We are currently in a "seller's market" meaning there is very little inventory out there to buy and lots of buyers looking. This means properties are getting multiple offers and selling for over asking price. If you are planning on picking up and moving again soon, my advice would be to rent for the short term and wait until you are certain that you will be in the same place for a while before opting to buy.

Sylvia. The answer to this is very situation. If you are going to buy and sell in a year then renting is hands down the right choice. If you were considering the purchase as a place to live until 2015 and then to rent it out as an investment property and move to a different primary residence that is a totally different situation.

If you are planning to move in 2015,  then buying for one year will be far more expensive than finding a one year rental.
