We’ve outgrown the apartment we bought in Taoyuan 12 years ago and are now looking to make a move to Yilan.
I’ll continue to commute to Taipei for work and we’re interested in enrolling the kids at “Ren Wen” elementary in Toucheng.
So, ideally, we’d like to find a place with quick access to Nat’l. Hwy. No. 5 and within 10-15 minutes from the school.
We’d be happy with a 40-ping hi-rise apartment with a nice view and amenities but would prefer an older house with a bit of yard.
What we looked at this past weekend were new houses in the NT$7-8 million range, which were all very lovely, but more indoor space than we need as a couple with two young kids. We’re keeping our Taoyuan apartment and not looking for an investment, just a place where the kids can enjoy an improved quality of (outdoor) life. All things considered, we should probably be looking to rent, rather than buy, except that the wife and I would both enjoy the chance to spend our weekends renovating our own place.
Any pointers on interesting locations/properties in the area would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
