LAS VEGAS - Liberace's old off-Strip mansion is up for sale for a veritable song, but is the property fabulous or a decrepit fixer-upper? Built in 1962, the once-lavish 14,939-square-foot spread sits on a half-acre lot near the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and features two bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and several large areas for entertaining. There are flashes of the legendary pizazz once embodied by Liberace, whose life was the subject of the recent HBO film, “Behind the Candelabra,” which details the eccentric entertainer's secretive romance with former chauffeur and lover Scott Thorson.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's much-ballyhooed plan to ease the state budget crisis by selling off landmark properties is facing a surprisingly tough first test in Orange County, a place where public officials regularly talk up free markets and privatization of government. A rare bipartisan wave is rising to block the governor's proposed sale of the beloved Orange County Fairgrounds, including conservative politicians who at first backed their Republican governor but are now urging him to call off today's auction and keep the land in public hands.

A case of tuna fish ... and a case of toilet paper ... and a home loan? Since when has Costco been in the mortgage business? Since last year, it turns out. That's when the Issaquah, Wash.-based discount giant began experimenting with offering home loans to some members via its website. Costco is so pleased with how things turned out that it's rolling out the service to everyone. Auto and student loans will follow soon. It makes sense. Costco has very loyal customers, and they're interested in financial services.

WASHINGTON — Though many home shoppers who assume they are still in a buyer's market find it hard to believe, one of the sobering fundamentals shaping real estate this summer is shrinking inventory: The supply of houses for sale has fallen significantly in most areas compared with a year earlier, sometimes dramatically so. And that is having important side effects by raising prices and homeowners' equity stakes and reducing total sales. In major metropolitan markets from the mid-Atlantic to the West Coast, the stock of homes listed for purchase has dropped by sometimes extraordinary amounts — 50% or more below year-earlier levels in several areas of California, according to industry studies.

Five months after he opened PNK Pro Beauty Supplies in Glendale, owner Karhen Abramyan has put the shop up for sale. He's gotten a few lowball offers in the last few weeks, but no deal. "I have $60,000 in inventory here, I can't just sell it for $50,000," said Abramyan, who is asking $95,000. Blame the bad economy. Buyers and sellers of California businesses are hampered because the vast pools of money that once fueled sales have dried up.

With the announcement late Tuesday that entertainment giant AEG, owner of the Staples Center and Los Angeles Kings, is up for sale, the deal, if it goes through, could be the largest in sports history. “This will be a massive deal,” said Marc Ganis of Sportscorp. Ltd., a Chicago sports-consulting firm. “Arguably it'll be the biggest sport-based transaction in history.” The $2-billion price tag for the Los Angeles Dodgers earlier this year was the largest sports team purchase of all time.
