Why do i have to search a specific town or zip code? Why can't I search a larger area?

I'd like to search all towns within 30 miles of my home town, but can't find any way to do that.

You can use the custom search boundary tool,     When you have the search open, click on the grey button with a squiggle on it (on the right side of the map) as circled below with a screen snippet.

It appears that West Virgina is just outside that 30 mile search area, so it appears that it is not necessary to search across State lines for you specific desired criterion.

You can also search by State, and then zoom the map to the area of interest.  As mentioned, if you want to exclude something in that zoomed map area, you can used the custom search boundary.

You can also search across State boundaries, but you will need to manually delete the Zillow Search cookie in your browser to get the entire United States.

Don't forget, that you can also search by County, so it is completely up to you how wide a search area you decide to use.  (But other than U.S. territories, Zillow does not provide listings outside the United States at this time).

Searching for a new home is an important event, you are investing in your further and acquiring an asset. considering what you need in a home (bedrooms, Bathrooms etc.), the surrounding area and the hope for appreciation. making a list of desirable items such as; school system; local transportation; attractions and maybe the local governments track record. tacking into account all aspects of why your buying a home and what your will to financially pay will put you in the ball park of where you can buy and when. pick your new home wisely so you won't have any regrets.
