Here's a new website/app that might interest you: Some entrepreneurs have developed BuildZoom, which compiles every building permit issued around the country based on data collected by local building departments.

Further information here.

You do wonder, in the digital age, why, say, Little Rock city offices could have easy web access to such mapped data, complete with photos (readily available at the assessor's website).
