From a tax POV, does it make much of a difference if we buy it in 2014 or wait until January for closing?

It is not going to make a difference. Unless you close on 12/31 or 1/1 everything will have to be pro-rated for x/365 of a year (property taxes, etc). If you wait till January, you are just putting off the inevitable of a more complicated tax return for one year.

If you find what you are wanting and finances are in place, why wait?
