Tommy “Tiny” Lister, a character actor who has appeared in nearly 100 movies including “Jackie Brown” and “Beverly Hills Cop II,” has agreed to plead guilty to a mortgage fraud scheme that cost banks $3.8 million. The 54-year-old actor entered the plea agreement Friday, the same day prosecutors charged him with conspiring from 2005 to 2007 to buy homes he could not afford and to withdraw more than $1.1 million cash in home-equity loans that were not repaid. Prosecutors accused Lister and five other people - a real estate agent, a mortgage loan officer, a bank manager, an escrow officer and an accountant - of using falsified records to help Lister unlawfully acquire four homes for $5.7 million.

The housing market stumbled anew in February as sales of previously owned homes fell for the third consecutive month and the number of dwellings available for buyers climbed. Though sales declined 0.6% from the previous month, as reported Tuesday by the National Assn. of Realtors, the drop wasn't as bad as economists had expected. Still, analysts said the sales results showed that the nation's housing recovery -- fueled by tax subsidies, low interest rates and cheap foreclosure properties -- is struggling to sustain its momentum.

Home sales in California jumped 15.4% in October, indicating the state's housing recovery continued into the typically slower fall season. California's housing market has been on an upward swing this year. The rebound stems from more people chasing fewer homes as interest rates remain low and inventory sinks. As well as rising from September's level, home sales were up 15.2% from October 2011, according to real estate firm DataQuick. The statewide median price was $285,000 last month, a 0.7% decline from the prior month but up 18.8% from October 2011.
