It all depends on what you are looking for, what the market is like in your area and what the moving agreement is with your new job contract. Some will help with closing costs but only if you are coming from having already been a home owner.
I've known people that have found their house with in the 1st day of looking. The house we are in now, we started looking for houses in late May/early June and found our house in Mid July. Our Realtor that we HAD to use, per the relocation company, just wouldn't listen to our needs and wants.
