From 1000+ last month to currently 250ish. Just an observation!

That is not surprising in my opinion. When they were up over 1,000 listings there were too many loans not getting funded. I think 200-300 is the right level for them until more investors come in.

Is there a way to see the number of listing per month?  I am looking at total notes available and I rarely see it below 700. 

Am I missing something?

There at nicklesteamroller, an attractive chart showing monthly loan amount:

And http://www.ericscc.com/stats/prosper-loan-growth shows the same story vis-a-vis funded Prosper listings.

Looking at the loans issued data on Prosper-Stats, it shows that Jan MTD issuance is at $5.33m in loans issued, compared to $3.12m during the same year ago period.  Maybe 71% YoY growth is peanuts vs. LC but it still seems pretty good.
