I'm done with renting and want to buy a house next. How far before my lease is up should I start looking for houses?

I don't want to close on a house and still have to pay rent, or pay the fee to break my lease... So essentially I really need to time my home-buying and lease-ending pretty well.

How far out do you think I hsould start really , really looking for a house to buy? How long does closing normally take?

You should start looking 60 days before your lease expires.

Closing as far as financing takes about 30 days, thats after every information has been submitted for financing.
Finding the right house is another story. You can always ask to stay a bit longer than ur lease allows by paying extra, many appartments allow this. Talk to your manager.
