It seems to me that your looking to rent again. If that is the case, I would suggest that you start looking for rental properties a month in a half before you have to move. August would be a great time to start your search. I work with renters all the time and advise them to start there search a month in a half in advance. I have a previous client of mine that contacted me about moving to Waldorf in May and advised her that we can start working together in April. When homeowners list there house for rent, there looking for someone to move in immediately or wihin a few weeks. If you are able to put a security deposit down up front when you apply for the home, you let the homeowner know that you are a serious renter and you want them to take the house off the market immediately. If you have the credit worthiness, good rental history, and both your security deposit and first months rent, you should have no problem renting another home three weeks before you have to move! If you need assistance, please feel free to give me a call at 301-917-5721 or visit my website http://www.dmvmetrohomes.com to set up listing alerts.
Good Luck house hunting!
Maybe I'm a little slow. Are you looking to rent again or would you like to buy a home?
I am a lender and if you want to see how the buying process works just let me know. Many people are learning that their mortgage payment is equal to or even less than their rent. It might be worth a look at least.

I think its a good idea to start getting a feel for what is available in your price range- have you been prequalified yet? What areas are you looking in? Have you selected a buyer's agent yet? I am an ABR which stands for accredited buyer agent and can work with you in making the whole home buying process stress free! Call or email me to get started.

This would be a good time to start examining your finances and getting financially prepared to purchase a home. There are many law changes taking effect in the next few months.that could cost homeowners using FHA financing a lot of money if they buy after June 3, 2013. Often you can break a lease with proper notice and/or small penalty. That would be small change compared to what you save with the new MIP requirements on FHA LOANS.

This is a good time to start your search particularly, if you are looking at purchasing a home. A lot of the properties will be potential short sale and can take some time before approval occurs and the ability to actually purchase.
1st step is obtain an approval letter to purchase a home from your bank, credit union. if you need assistance finding a good loan officer feel free to send me an email or call.
Second obtain a local agent who knows the area and you feel comfortable working with.
Good luck on your search and happy house hunting.
It's not to early to Start, depending on the type of homes your looking at. New Construction takes about 6 months, Short Sales Min 90 days or longer to settle.
But, if your looking at regular sales, and Foreclosures I would say unless you are planning on breaking the lease than you shouldn't .
If your not currently working with an Agent, I would be glad to sit down and discuss a plan that would benefit you. You can check out my reviews here on Trulia. Feel free to call or email me.
