Bonus room

The realtor describes this Santa Ana (CA) house as being in a "great neighborhood". If so, why are there bars on the windows. Is it to keep people in or to keep them out? Neither option is particularly appealing.

The realtor also tells us that the current owner has found another house and has said "get it sold". The owner has already cut the price twice. It was originally listed at $590k; it is now down to $565k. That smacks of desperation.

However, it isn't all bad. The house has a "bonus room". Yes, there is a bonus with this one and here it is:

Nevertheless, there must be a worry that the current owner has just cleared out the garage, painted the interior and called it a room conversion. The pile of old tires and rubbish does look suspicious. To be fair, the realtor is hedging their bets. The write-up actually describes this room as a garage-bonus room. Ultimately, it will be up to the new owner to decide this question.

The listing can be found here. This wreck was sent in by ocrenter, who contributes to a great blog called bubble tracker. It is well worth a read and a bookmark. Thanks OC. Is there anything similar out there. Of course, I know that the answer is yes. When you see it, let the rest of us know about it.
