It really depends on how long you plan on being there. There is a considerable cost to moving so personally I think it's better to push bigger and move less. You will also find that it may not be such a good location, but you can make a happy home in an area that might not be as 'fashionable' right now, but may well have a great community. If you are buying with a view to selling in the near future then go for the safer bet for sale, as it's so frustrating to be unable to move when you want to.
