I'm a little biased, but I'm loving the Minnetonka Market right now. Prices fell pretty hard but I've seen a lot of action so far this year.

Is anyone aware of any more mortgages that you can do 100% financing?
VA and Rural Development allow 100% financing but that's all I know of. FHA @ 3.5% down is the next best thing.

Buying a foreclosure...when will the bank sign the PA and cash our earnest money check?
Not to worry if they accepted your offer and you have that in writing. Find out who the title company is and contact the closing agent to see what the hold up is.
