Am one of those honest Brokers from Florida. When I do not know the answer I will pass. But since we are almost in September I will guess, I think you are just a bit late.
We should be ending our hurricane season in Florida by then. It will be safe to come down and meet us on the beach You can recognize me from the rest of the people from Bklyn I have a nice sun tan.
Its not too early to start looking. The perfect apartment for you may be showing now though move in is not until July or August.
For example, I've got a great one bedroom in a Prospect Heights Brownestone that won't be ready to rent until Mid July early August that's being shown now. Its in walking distance of Atlantic Terminal with access to 2,3,4,5, B,D, N, R, & Q Trains. Give me a call if you're interested.

As long as your willing to invest the time,you can start now.If the landlord does not want to wait you may have to go sooner to get that primo apartment. Also, as you get closer to the date you will have already gained the knowledge about rental values in today's market which will help you to make good decisions as you move forward.
If you need help locating an apartment, I would be happy to help. How high in rental amount would you be willing to view? Either way, good luck!!
