I will admit, I was hoping to expedite this entire process provided we find a home we like. We will do everything possible to get this done in a couple of months. The one thing we will not settle on is a house we don't both love and if there is nothing available in our price range we will do another 6-12 month lease at our current apartment complex. The lease here is up end of November.


Look at your lease. In some states you have a one year lease that is followed by month to month until you give so many days notice, and your 1 year lease can not roll over automatically into another 1 year lease. Or your landlord may simply be willing to go month to month with 60 days notice.

MUCH about real estate is subject to state law and can vary from state to state.
