I would recommend a six month lease anything shorter would be very expensive. If you are pre approved that will speed up the process. Upon finding a home and getting a accepted offer you can figure about 45 days to close. Cedar Park and Round Rock are popular areas. What exactly are you looking for? Let me know if I can help! Good luck on your move and Welcome to Lone Star State!

From the time you have an accepted offer on a home it generally takes 30 - 45 days till closing. Assuming you are financing. If you are paying cash, maybe as soon as 2 weeks.
I also have a great deal of experience with apartment locating and would be happy to help you with that and also finding and buying a home.
You probably want to go with a 6 month lease...a shorter lease really diminishes the number of options you have to choose from since most landlords and apartments do not offer shorter term leases...and the ones that do are going to be much more expensive usually.

I have lived in Round Rock for over 12 years now and would be happy to show you the area and see if we can work together to find the right place for you.
Also looking at schools and commute time.
So having said that once the right house is located and an offer sent to the seller (if looking at re-sale) consider about 45 days. I closed in 28 days ...if necessary that can be done.
If consider building a new home then you should consider 4 months aprox. But if looking at Short Sale and Foreclosure it will take longer to close between 60 and 80 days, to be safe.
I live in Round Rock and love it as I do love Cedar Park. Both conveniently close to major road and expressway.
I will love to help you make the right decision combining location, house preferences and your budget!

In advance we welcome you to Austin!
I would think a 4 to 6 month lease would be sufficient. The time frame honestly depends on how long it takes to choose the home that's right for you, as well as the type of financing you will be using and whether or not you've been pre-approved.
I live and work in Round Rock, and absolutely love it! :)
Please contact me at any time with any questions you might have.
If you would like, give me some particulars about what you are looking for. I can send you what's available now, and then as new houses come on the market you'll get an email. While Trulia and other public websites are great for getting a feel for the market, they are notorious for not being updated quickly. Notifications directly from our MLS are the most accurate.
Have you been prequalified? That's the important very first step. I can help with that as well. You can contact me anytime for questions and assistance!
When you get here, I'd love to sit down with you to discuss what to expect when you purchase real estate in Texas. My relocating clients are always a little shocked at some of the differences.
I hope this was helpful.
