    Having looked into land values in rural Idaho and western Montana over the last ten years, I haven’t seen the same thing happen here in the Northern Rockies. Prices for good rural land with conservation amenities still seem to be climbing, although vacant lots and homes within towns and cities have been dropping in assessed value.
