That’s because the whole area is our focus!

That’s why we state, “Seven Counties – One Website” because this seven county area makes up a great community with a LOT to offer each other! So, don’t let our name fool ya!
Buy & Sell
Our Buy & Sell section is where people can put all their goods and services online for others in the area to see! We allow you 4 pictures per ad and ALL ADS ARE FREE!!!! If you’ve ever used Craigslist then there’s not much more you need to know. If you’re new to online buying/selling, we recommend that you read our pages:
OR watch some tutorial videos on our page
Listings will stay up for 60 days after which the system will automatically remove them and send you an email letting you know that it has been removed. You then have the option of re-listing it or not. If you’d like a video demonstration of how to place an ad on the buy & sell section, you can go to our video tutorial page and watch the “Posting An Ad” video for a step-by-step visual demonstration on how to list an item or service.
The Business Directory
Our Business Directory is like a “yellow pages” for the 7 county area. The Business Directory also has the ability to separate businesses out via county or even city making it that much easier for you to locate the right business for your needs.

If you’ve got a business in the area then you need to get it listed on our website!

While we don’t mind assisting our users, please take the time to register for the site. It is advantageous to register because the site’ system will immediately email you when someone clicks on your contact information. You’ll get real time feedback! However, if an administrator puts in your ad, then the system contacts the administrator who must then contact you. This slows down the transaction process and we want your transaction to take minutes and not hours or days. If you’d like a video demonstration of how to register, you can go to our video tutorial page and watch the “How To Register” video for a step-by-step visual demonstration on how to get registered on the site.
As more people utilize our site, it will be continually necessary to add new categories to customize the site to the wants and needs of our users. If you have a suggestion for a new category or have an item that needs a new category please email us RIGHT AWAY! Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Just An FYI
Austin County Buy and Sell uses a software program that does not allow us to see communication between users. The program simply forwards messages between users. We are only the “meeting ground” for buyers and sellers. All messages or transactions are between buyer and seller and while we encourage everyone to follow “The Golden Rule” we have no control over an individuals conduct. Sometimes people who forget “The Golden Rule” will use the site. We apologize in advance for any unpleasant experience you may have while utilizing our site.
A good website is NEVER truly finished so please feel free to email us about any problems you experience or suggestions you might have so we can make this site the best it can be! If you have additional questions or comments, please email us at: email@example.com
