It’s the best time of year to buy a home, according to ATTOM Data Solutions.

“Nationally, while December is considered the best month to buy overall, there is still about a 1.2% premium,” according to the study, which looked at any calendar day between 2013 and 2018 that had at least 10,000 single-family home or condo sales. June ranked the worst, with a premium of 7.1 percent.

In the winter months, the states realizing the biggest discounts below full market value were Ohio (-7.4% in January), Michigan (-7.2% in February), Delaware (-6.3% in February), Tennessee (-6.2% in January), and New Jersey (-5.8% in December).

Kick off your wintry-season search with these 12 must-see open houses — from a two-bedroom condo in Jamaica Plain for $410,000 to a five-bedroom single-family in Brookline with “classic Colonial touches” for $2,995,000.
