House prices rise due to parks
According to statistics from real estate operators, there are 1,100 green spaces in Taipei City. These green spaces are of different sizes. Only 36 have an area of more than 10,000 pings (1 ping equals to 3.3057 square meters). If you add the condition of being close to the MRT station, only nine parks are left.
The data also shows that in the neighborhoods around these nine parks, the transaction price will be 24% higher than the surrounding market. If this community is the first row facing the park, the transaction price will exceed the regional housing price by 68%.
