The dipping real-estate market obviously is affecting everyone, including Oscar winners. One current casualty: Nicolas Cage, already beset by financial woes.
The Leaving Las Vegas and Honeymoon in Vegas star's foreclosed, 14,300-sq.-ft. home in the Nevada tourist destination may have sold for $4.95 million on its first day on the market, but Cage paid $8.5 million for it in 2006, the Associated Press reports.
The residence otherwise screams Vegas splendor: six bedrooms, seven-and-a-half baths, a 16-car subterranean garage, a theater and a glorious view of the city's downtown Strip.

Nicolas Cage is determined to get his financial house in order and to pay the IRS all that he owes in back taxes.
While the government recently placed a tax lien on his real-estate holdings, including an additional $6.7 million from 2008, "over the course of my career I have paid at least $70 million in taxes, unfortunately, due to a recent legal situation, another approximate $14 million is owed to the IRS," Cage tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. "However, I am under new business management and am happy to say that I am current for 2009, all taxes will be paid including any to be determined state taxes."
Cage will next be seen in the thriller Season of the Witch in March.

Nic Cage isn't being sued for fraud and lawyers for a real estate company are going after him for much less than a previously reported $36.7 million, PEOPLE clarifies.
Cage, who says he's facing financial ruin after allegedly being duped by his former accountant, is being sued by Red Curb Investments for failure to pay back approximately $3 million in loans.
Red Curb, a small private lender, is also seeking more than $3 million each from his former accountant and a mortgage broker, accusing them of defrauding the real estate company by not disclosing Cage's true financial picture, including his enormous tax debt.
Marty Singer, Cage's lawyer, tells PEOPLE: "Any claims that Nic Cage engaged in fraud or wrongful conduct is absurd and ridiculous."

Nicolas Cage's financial and legal nightmare continues to grow.
Christina Fulton, mother of Cage's eldest child Weston, 18, is suing the actor for fraud and breach of contract, alleging she's been caught in the web of his financial mismanagement and is now more than $1.2 million in debt herself, Los Angeles court papers show.
Cage stated in an October lawsuit he faces financial ruin after allegedly being duped by a former accountant, Samuel Levin. The actor currently owes $6.3 million in back taxes, recently defaulted on a $2 million loan, and has begun a massive sell-off of homes, cars, yachts and other possessions to recoup his losses.
