Brenda, there is a number of software programs you can choose from. A few of the other answers included CCIM, which will do most of the things you need and works well for me as I will include its parts in many of my analysis, but remember is not meant to be a stand-alone program, however I think you can use it for free as Jim G. posted a link for you to access it. Argus, which was also mentioned, is the standard in the institutional investing world and starts at about $1,000 for the Lite version up to about $5,000 for the full version, PlanESE is a complete program and starts around the $2,000+ range which I understand is very good form several of my fellow CCIM’s, and then there is REIwise, which is the one I use the most. It’s an online program that cost about $30.00 per month and provides pretty good reports, which, I had customized with my look and logo.
I suggest you do some online searches and call the sales team members of the software companies to see what may work best for you at a price you’re willing to entertain.
