How cool is this?  Interest is so low.  Wow.  I guess we are bucking all the trends with new low rates.  Here in Montana we don't have very many foreclosures (like one per 7500 homes) so our prices haven't taken the proverbial dip like in other areas.  We are lucky, but this is also not the place...
