About 3 months. But during those three months I probably spent over an hour a day doing research online, and went to open houses Saturdays and Sundays for 3 hours each day or so. It was intense!

A few months. We had been looking online for awhile and went to a couple of open houses. Then one day we went with our RE to houses I found online. On this day (the last house we saw) we knew.

Over a year, but we didn't buy the house for "the house".; We bought "the house" for the location and property.

Started looking in late May, found our house in July, our house already had an offer so continued looking until the end of September when we found out the other offer had fell through. So technically we found it after 2 months, but we did not go into contract until the 4th month.
