HOW TO SEARCH ALL OF CRAIGSLIST?
To search all of Craigslist, you need a 3rd party application. Craigslist does not let you search nationwide or even globally, but 3rd party applications let you do this. Applications like Autotempest let you define what you are seeking, where you are seeking it and also helps you sift through the results to find the diamonds in the rough and ensure you don’t overpay.
WHY CAN’T I SEARCH ALL OF CRAIGSLIST?
Craigslist, limits the search radius because it is inherently a “local search” platform geared towards selling locally to your neighborhood and broader community. Many people try to use Craigslist to find items more difficult to find in their local community. From cars to collectibles, sellers are out there offering goods that may not be available in your community.
Over the years Craigslist has allowed you to search wider and wider areas. Currently, you can search within a 200 mile radius of a location to find more results using the Craigslist website and application. Sometimes that will cover multiple states, but still it may not be enough to find you the results you seek.
