Depending on your price range and where downtown you would like to be. It really isn't that soon to start looking for February. Some of the buildings I am working with are already reporting inventory for January and February. If you are looking to start working with a well rounded broker or leasing agent now is the time to start forming a good relationship.
Best of Luck,
Manuel Brown, Broker
I always recommend to start looking 45 to 60 days out so in your case that would be now, or in january.
