There's no harm in beginning your search right now. It may not be prudent to commit at this point but investigating the current rents market should help you be prepared to make a sound decision when the time comes.
There are all kinds of scenarios. Who knows, you could identify a place now that isn't going to be available until August...."The Perfect Storm".....you never know but being active now will not decrease your possibilities, only expand them.
I can send a few listings with houses for rent.
