There are several places you can get temporary housing while waiting to move into a new home. Typically it takes about 30 days to close a loan, however, if you begin your mortgage process now, you can shave about 2 weeks off that. Once you fined a home the remaining mortgage paperwork would be completed and you could close and move in, or even negoitiate an early possession with the seller.
