Real Estate Auction


#1

Greetings to all,

Currently I am researching options of how I could setup a real estate auction website. To my understanding webflow is more of a frontend with some basic to medium CMS functions and not really able to cater for auction functions out of the box.

Has anyone attempted any kind of similar project before with webflow - or its better to focus entirely on another platform. Any recommendations?

My best,
AM

Yes, you’re right, Webflow isn’t tailored yet for this. Webflow does websites, and can do wome pretty complex ones using the CMS, way beyond what a blog just is.

But you’re looking for something that’s not just a website, but an application. And a complex one as auctions reqire some server magic, synchronization etc.

So you need that program to be develop, or to rent one that exist already. Once you’ve done that, you can surely integrate this program into a great looking site that you’ll design with Webflow :slight_smile:

Yeah I understand the auction function is quite complex but would be great If i can connect the backend to the webflow design.

To develop one customised for my use would take quite a while - renting a cloud app would be better. Will need some research on this side - if anyone here used such platform do share. Thanks.

For something like this, you’d definitely need to tie it in to a customized back end. It could probably be done in 1-2 months, though. You could easily handle all of the front end design in Webflow. I’ve done a few projects that way. Let me know if you’d like to talk more.

Would be great to discuss on a possible collaboration.
