Step 3. Under the "Add your post" section, click on the "Sell or give away an item" option located.

Step 4. Select which neighborhoods you want to be able to see your item. This is important because Nextdoor is a neighborhood-based platform, so only members of your selected neighborhoods will be able to see your listing.
