We rent -- our place is being sold at a short sale. What do we do?

Our condo in California is being sold at a short sale. We lived in the house for two years, our landlord loves us, but he has another house and it sounds like he's "underwater" on both houses. We've offered to buy the place, but everything I've read here and elsewhere on the interwebs make short sales sound like a tremendous nightmare. We really don't want to move. What are our rights, what should our strategy be? We've never owned a house before - help! [more inside]

Alternatives To A Short Sale? Negotiation tips, please?

So I'm looking to buy a house, but my short-sale offer was rejected by the seller's lender. (I assume the seller's financial situation is not as dire as necessary for their bank to approve a short sale for them.) Any suggestions on how to buy the house without throwing money away? [more inside]
