Jovio Editor's Review:

Jovio offers excellent representation services for buying and selling a home. Jovio is a tech-enabled brokerage with the knowledge and tools built to help consumers archive an excellent real estate transaction experience.

Jovio listing service includes posting home on the MLS and MLS Aggregator services, professional photos, and all typical services offered by a traditional real estate agent. Jovio charges a listing fee of 1% of the final sales price of your property. A minimum listing fee of $3,995 applies. If at any point during the term of the listing agreement the seller decides to terminate the said agreement, she is only responsible for paying $495 setup fee.

Jovio recommends offering a cooperating buyer agent commission that helps to attract buyers who are already working with an agent. Sellers are free to offer any amount they like to buyer’s agents, but 2.5% - 3% Buyer’s Agent Commission is recommended. Buyers can easily negotiate a rebate with their agent to reduce the costs of the Buyer’s Agent Commission amount. Eventually, all closing costs are paid by the buyer.

Jovio claims to list a home in as little as 24 hours. The majority of Jovio sellers get their home listed within several days of meeting with Jovio. To determine your home’s listing price, Jovio first gathers local information about comparable properties in your neighborhood. Jovio furthers helps to evaluate your home’s condition and any recent upgrades or improvements to come up with the best listing price for the home.

When self-represented buyers approach Jovio about the seller’s listing, Jovio reduces the 3% Buyer’s Agent Commission to 2% in favor of the seller and then splits its commission with the buyer, meaning buyers receive 1% (33% buyer’s commission rebate) back on their new home. This allows all parties to save a significant amount in buy-side commissions, but it also requires the buyer to accept the potential downside of dual representation.

For buyers, Jovio Real Estate offers on-demand home tours and an excellent client web portal for monitoring the purchase process. Jovio offers overall great value to consumers looking to buy or sell a home.
