All inventory snapshot 11/12/2012 at 1339hrs

As you can see - the total inventory for sale includes the Single Family Residences, Condo's, townhomes - multi unit buildings to 4 units, every single residential real estate home for sale.  The above numbers also include all of the various sales types.  Standard, Short Sale, pre foreclosures, bank owned, real estate owned, court ordered and probate.  Everything that is currently on the market and showing as "Active".  

You may be curious of how this search engine, powered by the internet data exchange, stacks up against the real estate syndication websites.  They show quite a few more listings.  With further inquiring I found what the "differences in listings" between my IDX search engine and those websites was.  It was the fact that some of the real estate syndication websites were showing those listings that were sold or in escrow.  I also noted that some of the real estate syndication websites were showing listings that were in the foreclosure process but were not for sale at the present time.  However, "joe consumer" would have no way of knowing that.  They'd give up their personal information way before they found out they had been duped. :(
