Popular neighborhoods and housing market trends in Taipei
When it comes to expatriate housing in Taipei, Tian Mu and Xinyi are two of the top picks for most assignees. Xinyi is popular for singles and couples because it’s centrally located to everything the downtown has to offer. Tian Mu has many single-family homes and large apartments that are particularly attractive to western assignees. Tian Mu also has two international schools, the Taipei American School and the Taipei Japanese School, and the Taipei European School is close by, making it very popular with those going on assignment with a family.
Overall availability is low across the expatriate rental market right now because there is an influx of engineers for wind projects. With the limited options, our real estate sources discussed tempering new assignee expectations. As a result of the tight supply, time-sensitive searches can be particularly challenging. Most market predictions indicate that this tight supply will likely remain for two to three years until the projects are completed.
