Even the most casual of real-estate watchers in the United States know that spring—and maybe summers, but there are condition—is a much better time to sell than when winter sets in.

Nevertheless, not everyone can sell their homes at the optimal time, which makes winter an especially good time to search for discounts slight and deep. We’ve picked a dozen at various price points for you to explore.

Remember, “bargain” isn’t the same as “cheap.” You can spend quite a bit money and still get a bargain—along with little thrill that you got more than you paid for.
