Wish Fairy wrote:- We plan to transfer in August, I've been reading that this is not a good time to look for a house. We are considering trying to find a house during June, but again, I am concerned that as summer approaches this willbe more difficult than looking in April for example - is this correct?

For good location you could even get tips here (if you first tell where you'd be working (and plans regarding transportation)). But getting the contract done without living here and not using some paid service will be difficult.
