Family offers home for free on giveaway website

A family is looking to save their former home from the wrecking ball by giving it away for free.

Margo Mildren put the property in Lockhart, near Wagga Wagga, on the charitable council website after her family outgrew the house, the Daily Telegraph reported.

She said that to avoid "horrific" renovating costs, the family had opted to build a new house behind it, but added she did not want the property to go to waste.

"It’s a solid old house, they call it a Californian bungalow, it’s structurally sound and easy to move," Ms Mildren said.

Such news may interest Aussies looking to compare home loans and secure a property. The yours2take site attracts about 8,000 hits a month, the Daily Telegraph said, with baby strollers, furniture, televisions and ironing boards all being given away.

A number of other nearby councils, including North Sydney, have expressed interest in the website for their residents.
