    You will need to be more specific. Are you looking for building ages for a particular geographic area? Mar 22, 2016 at 22:39

The American Community Survey has table B25034, which has columns for each decade from the 1940's to current (and another for "1939 or earlier"). Each column estimates the number of housing units in the given geography built in that decade.

You can download this data as GIS from Census Reporter, and probably also from American FactFinder.

For reference, here's a list of American Community Survey tables (as of the 2010-2014 5 year data release) which refer to the year housing units were built. Links are to Census Reporter "table" pages.
