Can anyone recommend agents for foreigners (non-locals)? Most of the agents I have gone to are not familiar with dealing with foreigners purchasing homes.
Good luck. You might want to PM ceevee369 who went through this process this year. He posted his experiences and the Forumosa.com community’s responses in this [url=http://tw.forumosa.com/t/what-do-we-obtain-renting-a-place-for-2-200-us-a-house/17036/1
Try Master Realty, they specialize n homes for foreigners so they know better than to show a p.o.s. apartment. They have offices all over Taipei, do a search on Forumosa for their contact or on Google.
