I read posts about buying an apartment in Taiwan. The bottom line (and anyone in the know can correct me) seems to be that if you’re looking to stay 10+ years, it makes alot of sense to buy your apartment. Any shorter timeframe, however, doesn’t make sense.
But my wife wants to apply for subsidized housing, and if we can get it, this arrangement kind of throws the whole analysis of those posts out the window. Before I think about this any further, I would like to know if there are restrictions in being accepted for subsidized housing (such as salary). My Taiwanese wife doesn’t think so but I find that hard to believe. She and I have been living outside of Taiwan for about a decade so we are both kind of clueless.
