JSMLS Conversion: New Map Search Features

For a FULL, detailed walkthrough of map features, watch the following video:

We are excited to show you all the new enhancements you’ll have access to for Map searches in Bright. In your previous system, you did have access to Layers that included items such as Boundaries and Points of Interest. Bright Map search has all the features you’re used to, with some additional features we think you’ll really love!

This video introduces three major differences.
1. Boundaries
2. Drive Time
3. Interacting with Parcels

Let’s start with Boundaries under the map Layers.

Bright Map search adds the following features to your map searching Boundaries.
County, Neighborhood, Flood Zones, Congressional Districts, High Schools, Middle Schools, and Elementary School boundaries.

Let’s say you have a buyer who wants their children to follow a specific feeder school pattern. You can see here that by turning on and off layers, you can see which homes are within the desired location.

You can still select listings to email, or trace the boundaries and save as an Auto Email.
Let’s talk about the next new feature. DriveTime! You may send your buyer one of these beautiful homes only to find out the commute is just too far. Save yourself and your buyer time by using the Drive Time search.

Drive Time gives you the option of driving to, or from, the desired location with an arrival time and the maximum drive time. Drive TIme searches also make great auto emails!

Lastly, in your previous system you could click on any parcel and get the address, owner, and lot dimensions.

In Bright you still get those three items but with so much more! Map Parcel layers include links to both public records and the most recent listing as well as a number of details for both records. And you can still view the lot dimensions right on the map.

We believe these are great additions to map searching and make it easier to find exactly what your client needs!

In Bright you still get those three items but with so much more! Map Parcel layers include links to both public records and the most recent listing as well as a number of details for both records.

MLS Area, Subdivision, and Building Tips for JSMLS Conversion

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

We’ve created this video to help those of you in the LBI area understand how to best utilize the MLS Area and Subdivision/Neighborhood fields to get the listings you want.

The first thing you want to do is set defaults for your most frequently used top fields entered. You’ll definitely want to start with at least entering the county as a default. You can set, reset, and change these defaults anytime using the grey gear icon.

In JSMLS you were used to searching by County, Municipality, Section, and Neighborhood.

Your most commonly used search fields in Bright will be:
-- County
-- MLS Area (which replaces the previously used municipalities field), and
-- Subdivision Neighborhood (where we have combined your previous Sections and Neighborhoods).

You can select multiple selections provided by holding control or command. You’ll see here, the Section name is the first part of the name in the picklist, followed by the Neighborhood after the hyphen.

You don’t have to choose each one of the individual items from the picklist to bring, for example, listings in all of Bayville. Instead, you can search Bayville using the asterisk which acts as a wildcard. This is done by typing Bayville* into the Subdivision/Neighborhood search box and then selecting it.

Keep in mind, you can always head over to the Map tab to use one of the draw tools and select a specific section geographically. To learn more about searching with the map, watch the video “Search & More - Additional Search Functions and the Map”.

Lastly, we’ve identified and moved neighborhoods that were really building names to the Buildings Section. These include Bay Club, Fishery, and Harbor View (to name a few).

Check out and click the Conversion Information box to access specific resources meant to help you with your conversion.
