At any rate, I'd advise you to explore your options with a mortgage broker.
As mentioned by other agents, it is certainly way to early to look for a place 4 months in advance. Rentals generally come and go very quickly - it has a very short cycle time. Hence I would recommend starting your search in November (given the holidays).
We have several 2-3 Bedrooms for rental available in Norwalk, would be very happy to discuss them with you at your convenience. I can also sign you up with a service that can send you automated emails every time a new rental comes on the market.
Looking forward to hearing from you

So it's now the end of January and I'm wondering if you secured an apartment in East Norwalk or you are still looking. There are a few nice rentals in the East Norwalk beach area if you're still interested.
It is a bit early to be looking. Do you live in the area? Are you familiar with the Norwalk area?
You seem to know what you want. I will say 3 bedrooms are hard to come by. Not a lot out there.
I can look for you and send as they come on.

Are you looking to buy or rent in Jan 2013?
If you are looking to rent you are a bit early but not too early to sign up for a Listingbook account to see what rental options are available. If you plan to buy now is a good time to begin your search.
Feel free to contact me about a free Listingbook account.

It isn't too early to start looking online to see what type of place you can get with your budget (size, location, updates, etc.).
Yes it is too early to physically start looking at places as the inventory will be completely different once you are ready to move in January. Places with similar updates will be available for similar prices, but the exact addresses and units will be different.
Basically it is a good idea to educate yourself now on what you can likley afford, and then get out to look a places about 30 days or less before your desired lease start date.
