SAGINAW COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Deidre Saucedo wants to give her house away. She and her husband, along with their kids, are ready to move out of their Buena Vista Township home.

"It would mean a lot for me because you never know what somebody's predicament is," Saucedo said. "Some people are going through really hard times."

But instead of selling it she wants to donate it, to give some lucky person the chance to have a home to call their own.

"It's completely paid off. All the taxes and everything," Saucedo said. "Only thing they have to worry is their regular bills and paying the taxes twice a year."

Saucedo said her house will be ready for move-in once she can find somebody to help her add a room to this neighboring house down the street.

"My mother's house next door is only three bedrooms," Saucedo said. "So that's why we're asking for help to get another bedroom added on to that house. And in exchange we just want to donate our house to somebody who needs it."

Saucedo is looking for a willing, licensed contractor to make the addition.

As far as a search for prospective owners goes, Saucedo is searching far and wide, turning to TV5 and social media to find the right fit for this house.

"I want to make sure it goes to a family who really, really needs it," Saucedo said.
