homes in nampa: Taking a Look at Mortgage Interest Rates Since 1990 - 10/24/10 07:04 AM
When you figure that the majority of a home buyer's monthly payment is interest, doesn't it make sense to take advantage of low interest rates?

 Distressed Realty Sinks Appraisals
This is the front page article in the Idaho Statesman on this Saturday morning, Feb. 6, 2010.
When I was called by the reporter for information for her article, I was nervous because you never know if the newspaper will quote you right or place your comments in the right context.
Though my quote was short, I will say, she published it accurately.
