Before you start waisting time and looking you should make appointment with a lender and get preapproved for a loan. You will save lots of time if you get your preapproval 1st. If you start looking and find your property before this is done you wont be able to make an offer until you have your preapproval from the lender.
Doing the preapproval will save you from looking at propertys you cant afford.
Good luck on your search.
