Recording the trajectory of Taiwan's housing market
As a leader in the industry, Sinyi is very willing to share real estate expertise with the public. It is believed that the more popular professional knowledge, the more it can help to promote a reasonable, secure, and efficient industrial environment and build a trustworthy society.
Taiwan Real Estate Almanac
Xingyi Cultural Publishing has, since 1996, published an annual Taiwan Real Estate Almanac, providing an objective and rigorous record of the Taiwanese housing market which serves as an important reference for industry, academia, and government regarding trends and changes in the real estate industry. In addition to a macro view of the overall politics, economics, and industry trends, the yearbook covers market analysis of individual products such as residential, office, retail, and leisure real estate. Experts were commissioned to analyze and write articles about the important issues of the year.
In order to make the content of this almanac more substantial, the CNCCU-Sinyi Research Center for Real Estate has been entrusted to be responsible for the compilation of the work since 2001. Price and volume data of Taiwan’s long-term housing market and crucial economic and policy changes are updated yearly in hopes of presenting the industry and market development trends to foresee the future by examining the past.
In 2020, we published the 25th edition of the almanac, inviting experts from industry, academia, and government to provide their insight into contemporary issues in the development of the industry. The almanac has also been donated to the libraries of schools teaching real estate related areas to further contribute to the development of the industry.Learn more

Specifically, Professor Jang Ding-shiuan was invited to deliver a speech on the topic of “Exploration and Application of Taiwan’s Housing Vacancy Data”—where a comprehensible yet in-depth analysis of vacant houses was provided—in May 2020.
