How do I get to collect data as to how many houses are in a designated area?

The Overpass API allows you to limit your query to a bounding box, an area already in OpenStreetMap or an arbitrary polygon.

Note that the "completeness" of OpenStreetMap varies by area, and even if the building are traced they may only be tagged generically as building=yes or building=residential rather than as one of the house specific tags (=bungalow, detached, `semidetached_house', etc.).
