Some key areas are < 1 year old and many areas are <2 years, based on 
personal experience of N. VA, DC, Las Vegas, etc.  It's probably 
controlled by which areas have recent paid air surveys; I'm sure that 
there are fairly standard deals to buy copies of that data, although 
making the first deals to make it available in such widespread ways must 
have been tough and expensive.
