Movoto by OJO is by far and away the best real estate search portal on the market. It has more listings than the other guys and even more importantly, more data and insights about homes, neighborhoods and even sustainability which is very important to me. One of the best parts about Movoto by OJO is all the support you get from the OJO team after you start your search. I was paired with an OJO Concierge who helped me navigate the buying process and shop for a mortgage. Simply amazing!!
This app/site is not accurately monitoring or screening for fake/spam listings. I caught at least 4 in the past two weeks. One of which not only contacted me but scheduled a time to tour the house. Fortunately my instincts knew to block them and not go. The listing was removed the following day because it was a scam, they emailed me instructing me to cease contact. But what if someone doesn’t possess the same discernment, or doesn’t get the email in time? Someone can get scammed or even worse! I will not be using this site or it’s partner Zumper any longer, this is ridiculous and getting out of hand. I do not recommend this app, if so proceed with caution and do as much verification as possible. Also important to note, I’ve tried working this review 3 times and have gotten kicked off midway. I had to copy and paste this from my notes. Not sure why but that’s fishy too.
This app does not keep up to date. I will find a house I’d love to see and it sold 4 to 6 months ago. We all know real estate is going quick now, some apps lag by days or weeks- this one is months! Always check a listing you like on another app, it could be long gone. Also, if you own a house- you may find it listed without your permission. We were months from having our place ready to sell, hadn’t even spoken to an agent, but I was looking in this app for what was available. Found our home was listed on this app at a price that was lower than our neighborhood could support. We received spam letters addressed to “ the owner of” our address with offers for rent to own. It was creepy. It took almost a full day of being blown off by these people before I finally got someone to take the listing down. Not cool.
This is my favorite home search app by far, and I’ve been using it for years. It is easy to use, and the interface makes a lot of sense. I highly recommend it. My gripes are: that the latest version is somewhat unstable when viewing photos or loading maps (restarts occasionally required); sometimes photos are not all loading on a house until you restart; I wish there was an option to use Google Maps instead of Apple Maps; and I wish there was a way to create a more specific geographic area search. Despite those issues, I still love Movoto.
Great app to find homes if you only want to look in a certain area. Don’t try to zoom in because if there are no houses in your zoomed area it will give you an error message each and everytime you move the map and there is no houses in an area. If you zoom in too close zooming out can be 4 error messages, which is very annoying. Also, when searching I live in a city that has smaller cities around. So if I want to look in one city and around it I should be able to move past the city boundaries. NOPE!!! If I try to move out of the city boundaries it bumps me back to the city search. Freaking annoying. LET ME SEARCH.
I like this app- you can easily choose your preferred area or do a map search and browse away! Move the map to look elsewhere without losing your preferences- Pick your price range, area and type of home easily or change preferences as you go along. Photos come up large, clear and nicely formatted. Property info from the state or county is not always robust but other apps can fill in the details. This is a visually appealing, easy search app. Enjoy!
Without naming them, I have tried to use other realty sites and it was a waste of my time and extremely aggravating. I tried to limit my search and Z, R, Red, etc. sent me a bunch of crap, not what I had filtered down. This site has sent me properties as they are listed that are in the exact location, within price parameters and otherwise what I specified. I have deleted the other apps and I am relying in MOTOVO. Way to go and when the right house is listed, I intend to snap it up. You snooze, you lose.
I had never heard of Movoto and did not know what to expect. The answer is I could expect and enjoy EXCELLENCE. Prompt and gracious people are very helpful and providing well chosen information to persons seeking a home. Their help is professional as well as kind and understanding with those like me who do not know every step in the journey toward a new-to-me new home. Movoto, you are awesome! Thank you all!!
We are actively looking for a house in another state. Sometimes this app resets for where we live currently. Looking for a specific town or county but this app sends me houses from as far away as 40miles. We looked there a few times so the app thinks we want to continue getting info from there. We cannot tell the app to discontinue that search. I don’t like the bombardment of the same info clogging my email. Why do I still use the app? Because the pictures are bigger. The information is informative. But again I don’t like a lot of the information given.
I love the site. You truly receive new homes as they are listed daily the only drawback is during my process when I see a new home it’s very difficult to know if the home is under contract or not prior to reaching out to view the home. My example is now I have a home under contract for at least two weeks and it’s showing a status on the website as being for sale.
I LOVE this app. More than the competitors. Recently it started force closing. It begins to load and then it just crashes. I have more than 1 device and it does it on each. Can’t wait for this to be fixed because I’m definitely missing this. Until then I’ll have to go online because the others just don’t compare.
My experience with your website showed me listings I have never seen ,with same location permitters and your site has them. Thank you for being excellent with your listings. I gave 5 stars because it is.
I love the Movoto site, it’s the best for home searches out there. And I used to love the app, even though it’s always been a little unstable. But I haven’t been able to use it for months now. It starts to load for a second or two, then crashes, no matter how many times i try to open it. There have been several updates, but nothing has changed. Hope this gets fixed so I can use it again.
So far everything is just like the website except I don’t like that I can’t see the pics individually and zoom in and I also don’t like how if I search a city and get no results it doesn’t give me an option to search nearby areas like it does on the website. But other than that im hoping to find my first home on here!
The map feature on this app is especially frustrating. Any time you try to zoom in on an area you have to exit out of it telling you there are no properties matching your criteria before you can keep looking or zooming. I have found really interesting listings on this app that I don’t see on other apps which is nice… but the map feature sends me away every time
I have found a greater variety of styles, layouts and other features in Movoto’s listings than in certain other, shall we say without naming names “more recognizable, larger realties.” I actually look forward to searching for new listings on Movoto.
It’s has helped me a lot searching for homes. It’s very much accurate with the market value. What pops up as new to make me decide on the property and schedule a viewing. I recommend for investors and first time home buyers to see and compare homes they like in the areas market.
I like how the app lets my husband know when I’ve liked a house but every time I try to move the list the map moves making the list change. It’s very frustrating. I have my finger on the list and try to swipe up, the move readjusts so instead of looking at the list of my desired area, I spend my time trying to keep the map from moving.
I am interested in this house I will pay more than the actual asking price Lynnette khan 333 2nd Ave SW I am looking for a house in Rockford because it’s close to my son and I am a new grandma and I want to be close to my granddaughter they live about 30 minutes apart if I moved in that house I can get to my sons house in just a few minutes Please let me know if it’s still for sale I saw that house on the Internet onceAnd I never saw it again so I just wonder if it’s been sold ..Please let me know thank you
This app is great. Makes house hunting fun! I really find the layout of everything, especially the pictures very helpful. Especially bc the pictures take up my whole iPhone screen. Adding to favorites is great too. Thanks, Movoto!
This app always manages to kick me out, and when it doesn’t, it will just randomly stop populating photos on the house ads. I constantly have to switch from my phone to my computed just so I don’t lose my mind refreshing the app. I have a new iPhone 13 max pro, so not sure why this always happens.
I just installed the program yesterday to assist a time sensitive home search. The only issue I have is the program ALWAYS gets stuck when you try to view the listings photos. The first page loads fine but when you click the PHOTOS square the page goes blank, you can’t get the photos to run AND I have to close the page and start over, this happens every time I try to look at the extra photos even if I wait 30 minutes for the page to load. Any suggestion on how to fix this problem ? Lesa OMara
I’ve started to use this app an I do like it a lot. Seems to be accurate compared to others. I’m still using it with a few others. Things that can improve on this app. 1. App freezing and crashing when pictures are loading. Have to reopen the app. Gets annoying when searching. 2. Should have a mortgage calculator so you can estimate what your mortgage might be. That’s a plus for me. 3. This would be nice to have a map for area for crime schools Ect like one of the others. That a suggestion. Overall good app easy to use.
I prefer Movoto to other apps but it’s frustrating when app freezes up. You can view 2 or 3 homes, but then app freezes up or takes an excessive period of time to load. The only resolution is to close app and start over. I would recommend app developers take a serious look into this issue.
I can’t even use this app because it crashes the moment I start using it. Just downloaded it, opened it up, I get to the welcome screen and boom! It crashes and the app closes down. Tried it 10 times. Crashes at “Welcome to Movoto, Let’s get started.” Closed it out completely, it still does it. Removed the app and reinstalled it, it still does it. Closed it out and retried it after some time, it still does it.
Since getting this app, I have been getting spam calls several times a day every day. They call from local generated numbers that I block but they still call from different numbers with the same automated message. The app itself is not worth having because the listings are not updated regularly. Worst mistake ever, this app.
I installed this app thinking I would get the features I enjoy so much on the website, specifically ClimiateCheck, as we are moving because of fire season. Unfortunately you don’t get that with the app, really disappointing.
I marked a property posted on Movoto. Then I click to “see property “ nobody contact me to SEE the property. One week later I received an email that indicates the property was sold in a price lower than posted at Movoto. I call to Movoto and the answer I received was that they are “third parties” and don’t are the Real State agents of properties. Movoto has to put accurate price and description of properties on their website.
Like the format because it’s easy on the eyes. Few things that are important to me such as property tax and property size in acres. Wish there was a way to convert into the appropriate measurements that fits my needs.
Never ask again don't care your customers bad service so bad
They never call you back only waisting your time so bad They never call you back so bad service don't waist your time with this page They never call you back so bad service don't waist your time with this page
This app has way more houses than the competitors but the interface is horrible and it’s so glitchy it’s almost unusable. Sometimes I can’t zoom in any closer than a city so I have to switch to another app or use the browser. Terrible app. So bad that I came to review it which I never do.
