How far in advance of my anticipated move should I start to look at homes with a Realtor?

Properties that are in good condition and well priced do not usually stay on the market long.

If you need to give notice on your present residence, it would be a good idea to plan for about six weeks. You can see a lot within a couple if weeks, negotiate your offer and get your loan approved in that amount of time.

Looking too far in advance is essentially a waste of time. The house you fall in love with could well be sold before you can get all your ducks in a row.

Every situation is different. Find an agent you would like to work with and share your needs.

The agent can advise you about the best options available to you.
