I’ll start with a disclaimer: I do not have the money to buy a home and possibly never will, whether it be in Taiwan or anywhere else, and that’s fine.
What bothers is that, assuming I did have the money, there’s nothing in Taiwan that I feel is worth buying. There are so many nice units you can get all over the world for the right price, but in Taiwan, even if you had an infinite amount of capital you’d still just end up with a concrete block in a building with cheap and uninformed imitation of Roman columns on the bottom and tasteless tiling up to the roof.
People have the money to pay the inflated price tags, why not actually make the places livable?
My rant is born of an unusual amount of caffeine intake and having seen this list someone shared on Facebook: teepr.com/%E5%85%A8%E4%B8%96 … %E9%96%93/
There’s no good reason Taiwan can’t have a place like this:
but people just don’t seem interested. If I had 10 million dollars, I’d rather buy a home somewhere else and just keep renting here.
