The context is Jack bought a new house several days ago but I think it's better for him to buy the house next year.
So can I say like this below?
I wish that he would have purchased the house next year.
It's my honour to learn English from all of you here!
plus, can I make friends with you on Skype, too?
here is my Skype ID: fc51060140.
I wish he had decided to buy the house next year, instead of two days ago.
I wish he had not purchased the house yet, but [had] waited until next year.
Note that you need to add a verb like 'waited, decided ...'
You can't say: I wish he had bought/purchased the house next year.
