I’ve got an apartment that I’m quite attached to. It’s a rooftop so I’ve got my punching bag, plants, bbq’s all set up, but the place is quite small. It’s old, there’s no elevator, the aircons are ancient, the bathtub has been patched, it’s NT$15 000 for 2 bedrooms, etc. etc.
Now my current roommate is moving out (to a cheaper place) and I’m considering getting a new one, but am worried that ppl will think that the place is too expensive. I don’t really want to move out of the Shida area or pay that amount myself.
Should I get rid of an apartment that’s obviously a dud (I have 4 months to decide) or hang on to my baby and all my happy Taipei memories?
I regularly read the housing ads but have never really been inside another apartment so that I can compare it to mine…
