Version 3.2

NEW FEATURES

Market Comparison Tool

You asked and we delivered! Market comparison has been a highly requested feature since we launched BrightInvestor. This tool allows BrightInvestors to compare up to 15 markets at a time! Compare markets manually by entering them in (by city or zip code), or select a state to view the top 15 cities queried by either highest current or growth values of population, jobs, median price, and average rent! 

Instant Shareable Market Comparison Reports

After comparing your markets and determining your top contenders, create an instant live report page to quickly send as a link to business partners, lenders, or friends. Reports print perfectly on paper as well for sharing in person. Simply copy the link, and you're good to go! 

BrightInvestor Academy

We have built out in-depth onboarding walkthrough tutorials to teach you from A-Z how to become a master at using BrightInvestor! One of our biggest requests is more education on how to analyze markets. With BrightInvestor 3.2, we have recorded all new video tutorials, written tutorials, and now interactive in-app walkthroughs! 

Updated User Interface

We have updated zip code popups, notification messages, and more to create a more consistent and updated look to BrightInvestor!
