How it Works

The FREE classifieds have many features for sellers, buyers, or those just wanting to use the Connections categories. Anyone posting an ad must create an account, which also has tools to manage their ads; buyers don't need to register to contact the sellers, though by registering they can take advantage of features such as creating "favorites" list and private messaging. Here are items of note:

  • It's FREE to post any ad except Real Estate For Sale (though "Real Estate Wanted" ads are free too). Real estate ads cost $10 a month to post. If you choose, for nominal fees ($2.50-$5) you can make your ad "featured" or highlighted to attract additional attention.
  • Please post your ad to the most appropriate category. Real estate ads posted to any other category will be removed.
  • The FREE classifieds are intended for use by individuals who live in northern Idaho or adjacent regions ONLY. Postings that are not local to our region will be removed.
