Short on closing costs

Short on closing costs. We're bidding on a house, have the 20% deposit, but are short on closing costs (by about 10k). Some options are out; for example I cannot take another loan until we have signed. A friend has suggested that we ask the seller to pay the costs and then we pay more for the house. Has anyone done this? Thanks! [more inside]

We sold our house. Where to now?

After 14 years living in our small farm house a once-agricultural town in Connecticut our family has had to move on. Despite the markets leaning we did make a profit and would like to reinvest it as quickly as possible. As far as what we desire out of a location, we wouldn't like to go any farther north but have no real desire to stay in the state and would consider moving out of New England for the right reasons.

Bad Apartments

I'm interested in stories about living in apartments where something bad has happened. Apartments with gnarly histories. Murders, suicides, 'haunted' apartments, whatever. Did it affect the value? Did you learn about it only later? Did you hire an exorcist? Did a new paint job suffice? etc. Anyone have such stories, or know of such?
