    seres, all the best, but there are hundreds of sites that have tried to setup as Flippa competitors. Unless you have some serious backing, a kick-ass site and a huge amount of activity your site is just going to die like so many of the other listing websites. Good luck and I hope you succeed.

    Karlos nailed it.

    A script for such a site is extremely easy to make (well, given that you have scripting knowledge or know where to outsource) - what's difficult is getting the initial base of BUYERS to the site who in turn attract sellers, and promoting your site on BHW and a couple of other message boards most certainly isn't going to bring any buyers to your site.

    Yes - Flippa has quite a few negative sides to it (first and foremost the pricing), but they also have a boat load of buyers browsing the site every single day, which is exactly why they're doing well and why a new site, even if it offers 20x cheaper prices and a 20x better functionality isn't going to make it.

    It's indeed about the time that someone serious would enter the market and start competing with Flippa but simply put - if you don't have a $10k+ marketing budget to work with you can pretty much forget it.

    I don't want to sound rude or discourage you but unfortunately that's how the reality looks like ..

    (On another note - something that you indeed CAN do is keep developing your script so that it would be absolutely top notch, at which point you can easily find someone to JV with in order to launch a marketing campaign that will get your site off the ground ...)
