  • Abstract Taiwan has entered yet another dramatic housing price increase that may prove to be a bubble in the near future. The only question is if so, how bad is the burst going to be? Due to the excessive money surplus from years of economic prosperity in the past, there is a great desire to invest the extra money. Because many feel that investing money in property is the safest solution with possible gains, many of those with a money surplus are investing in Taiwan’s real estate. This paper aims to show that the property investment demand in Kaohsiung is moving rapidly upwards while other related economic functions remain stale. Using data collected from real estate agencies and personal investor interviews it was found that optimism and reliance on the housing market is not supported by market fundamentals but rather by high speculation.
