It would be smart to bring in some documentation regarding your income and assets. If you have a recent credit report, so much the better. Consider what your time frame might be. A rental can be done fast provided you find something you like. A purchase could take longer as it is an involved process. Get on down to Montague street and good luck to you in the New Year.
If you are buying, first thing is to be pre-qualified to know how much the bank will lend you and how much you want to spend a month. After that, we can start looking for the right place for you.
Renting, all you have to do is look for a place around 3 weeks before you may need to move.

The first thing to do if you would like to purchase an apartment is to choose a skilled, experienced agent. They will set you up with a lender to get pre-qualified and help you decided if a co-op or condo is right for you. I see you are in Brooklyn Heights, and the Heights these days is actually quite reasonable compared to some other Brooklyn neighborhoods which have shot up in price the last few years.
Your agent will do a thorough search for you of units that meet your specifications, arrange showings, negotiate on your behalf, and take you through each step of the buying process. Working with a knowledgeable agent will save you time, money and aggravation.
