HR wants my salary info

Tell them my salary or politely decline? On Friday, I learned about a job opportunity though an ex-colleague who would be my new boss. This person told me they're eager to fill the position and asked what salary I'm looking for. I ducked the salary question and, at their urging, applied online yesterday. Today I get a one-sentence email from an HR rep asking my current salary. I know salary negotiation has been covered on AskMeFi before, but I haven't seen this particular variation. No interview has happened. Doesn't salary talk usually happen later on? I have no idea how much this position pays, benefits, etc.; it could be better or worse than my current gig. The prospective position is grant-funded with a City agency. (Side question: are grant-funded positions risky?)

Cash vs. Loan from Bank's Perspective

I'm looking at some foreclosed homes in the front-range area of Colorado. There is no shortage of "bank owned" homes in this area, and I happen to have a pretty good chunk of cash and I want to buy a home "outright" with cash, no loan. I was wondering if I could low-ball the asking price of the house, and what would be a reasonable, realistic amount to offer. [more inside]

Can a Beggar Afford to be a Chooser in this Economy?

I was laid off from probably the nicest job/work environment I've ever had and the more job interviews I go to, the more I realize that I really want another work situation like the one I lost. Is this realistic given the bad economy (I'm in NorCal w/a 10% unemployment rate)? Should I try to hold out for an offer where I'll be similarly happy or should I just focus on getting back into the workforce? [more inside]

I have been at my current job for five years; 2 years ago I transitioned from an active-duty (military) position to the same job as a civilian hire on a 2 year contract.

Real World Salary Negotiation - How do you do it?

Salary negotiation - how to do it? I know that, in theory, you're supposed to get them to talk first. Does that really work? How do you do that without coming off like a jerk? Nowadays, the salary question starts in the first email. I generally deflect this question pretty well, but in the interview when they ask "What salary range are you looking for?" I run out of things to say. How do you answer this question? Give me specific phrases I can use. Based on an earlier AskMe threads, the Noel Smith Wenkle approach works well. On the other hand...
