How to Search Craigslist in All States

By Katherine Johnson

When you are searching for items to buy, services or real estate on Craigslist, you may want to expand your search outside of your city and extend your search to your entire state or neighboring states. Craigslist does not offer a way to search multiple areas at the same time. However, you can search all of the listings on Craigslist by using a specialized search engine used only for Craigslist like crazedlist.org. Crazedlist allows you to search by region, state, country, price and category. You must disable referrers in your browser before you can use Crazedlist.
