Craigslist, one of the most useful sites on the Web, does not offer (yet) the ability to search more than one city's ads at once. That's where the following sites come in:
- Allofcraigs: A simple Google mashup that searches Craigslist according to your specs; you can narrow by category, price, and date.
- SearchTempest: SearchTempest offers you a similar search to Allofcraigs, with the added ability to sort cities from your location geographically (so you hopefully don't have to drive too far for that widget you're looking for).
- PadMapper: Apartment hunting made simple. PadMapper lets you filter out locations and amenities to find exactly the new home you're looking for.
- Yard Sale Treasure Map: Pretty much what it sounds like! Find great garage sales in your area and print out a map for easy access.
- CrazedList: Probably the most comprehensive Craigslist search tool on this list. You can search multiple Craigslist sites for pretty much anything you want: jobs, cars, houses, etc. - and set up custom RSS feeds as well.
Is there a Craigslist search tool that you are fond of? Let's hear about it in the comments.
