The shared equity housing tool – A solution for South Florida’s housing challenges

As a bustling center for international trade and tourism, South Florida’s prosperity increased exponentially over the last decade. However, this prosperity resulted in rapidly rising housing and rental costs that have quickly outstripped wages for most residents. Today, the median home sale price is unaffordable to 90% of all workers in Miami-Dade County and 88% of Broward County households (Miami Affordable Housing Master Plan; Broward County Affordable Housing Needs Assessment).

With years of experience combatting the complex root causes of inequitable housing and lending, Neighborhood Housing Services has a vision for working together to achieve a better, more resilient version of our community, one in which a safe place to call home is available to all residents. The shared equity housing tool is one of the homeownership & development options that we are exploring to address South Florida’s current challenge.

As part of those efforts, we have partnered with NeighborWorks America to provide the 4-week “Shared Equity Housing Webinar” to those partner & stakeholders working directly in that field and for a great sponsorship price $75 (retail price is $475). Our goal is to foster -across partners, community development practitioners, government, for profit and non-for-profit developers and fellow organizations- creative models to generate affordable homeownership.
