Dunno price per ping, but I just bought a place in Ankeng (not too distant from Xindian) and it cost NT$6.6 million for 48 pings. Newly renovated, too. Beautiful.

Thanks for all who have participated on this thread. I think I have gone through almost all of the 21 pages and found a lot of useful info.
I too have been home hunting – somewhat reluctantly. We’ve been around Sanxia a couple of times. I actually quite like the feel of the developments. Although it looks little more than beehives from the highway, ground level you can see how much more thought is put into planning than previous decades: sidewalk cafes, tree lined avenues, etc. Two main concerns though: price and the low level of occupancy.
I’m from the “get the wife of my back” clan mentioned several times earlier. Not that she’s really gun-ho, but she’s definitely initiating things.
I am much more hesitant. We live in a lovely home in the center of the city, which sets us back just 10K in rent each month. A token payment, as it’s in the family (a slightly complicated issue – but that’s another story).
I’m quite happy for our money to be in the stock market, especially after the great returns of the last couple of years. I’m quite uncomfortable selling my stocks to put into property here. I don’t see any value. After experiencing the hard side of property bubbles bursting in the UK – I am so surprised there seems to be little history of big dips in the housing market in Taiwan. I would like to wait until a dip, but my wife has the opinion that now is the time to buy before they get any higher.
I guess I’d like to know what you would do in my situation.
