The South Miami Shipping Container Home is SOLD!
MIAMI REALTORS® sold its new single family affordable housing opportunity built from a repurposed cargo shipping container in December 2021. The South Miami home was sold to an eligible homebuyer (see definition below) for an affordable price — $160,000.
The planning, development and sale of this home is the culmination of years of brainstorming innovative and creative affordable housing solutions.
MIAMI REALTORS® developed this prototype in partnership with the National Association of Realtors (NAR), Miami-Dade County and the City of South Miami to not only explore the challenges in developing this new style of housing, but also to keep homeownership affordable in areas of opportunity.
Located at 6180 SW 63 Terrace, South Miami, FL 33143, the home was developed by MIAMI REALTORS® and sold to an eligible homebuyer for an affordable price — $160,000.
