Quick Tip #1: Add a county default to your search screen

if you only work in a particular county, you can save that county as your default on your search screen. This will narrow your MLS Area, Subdivision and other results to just that county. Watch the video below to learn how.

Quick Tip #2: Add a Listing

Bright will automatically save your work every minute. While editing a listing, clicking the Back arrow on your browser or inside Manage Listings will take you back to the Manage Listings main page. Make sure to click Yes to save your changes on the alert that appears.


Quick Tip #3: Share New Construction Homes on your personalized ShowingNew.come site

In addition to being able to search for new construction homes and local home builders, New Home Source Professional (NHS Pro) offers you a personalized new construction homes site called ShowingNew.com. Your personalized ShowingNew.com site is free as part of your New Home Source Professional account.  It’s also included with your Bright subscription at no additional cost.

Here are a couple ways you can utilize your ShowingNew.com site

  • Give your clients a space to review listings you have sent to them. When you send listings or saved searches, your clients receive an email with a link to your ShowingNew.com site, where they can review the listing and give feedback.
  • Your website prospects can search in this branded space. You can embed your ShowingNew.com link on your website or social media pages to allow visitors to research new homes and ultimately convert them into leads. When prospects save a listing or search, print a report, or email you, their information is captured, allowing you to follow up promptly.
  • Your ShowingNew.com site is designed to help you generate more new home business. It’s a safe environment, complete with your personal branding:
    • Your name
    • Headshot
    • Logo
    • Phone number and email
    More importantly, all client and prospect information is yours and yours alone. Consumer information is never shared with builders. However, as a free service, NHS Pro will occasionally provide builders with your information so that they can offer assistance when you are actively working one of their listings.
Please note, you can access your free NHS Pro account from Bright by clicking New Home Source Pro link located underneath the FREE ADD ONS section of the Search menu.
