How Is Feng Shui Used In Real Estate?

By: Rakesh Lall

Feng Shui is an ancient science of Chinese art of placement for creating harmonious environments at homes, offices and other premises. Feng Shui is said to balance the relationship between nature and the dwelling spaces.

The fundamental part of Feng Shui is energy called Qi (pronounced as "Chee or Chi"). Feng Shui involves placement of objects, use of color, etc. based on techniques that create a natural balance and a positive flow of this energy into surroundings.

The knowledge of Feng Shui is useful in real estate. This is because Feng Shui is a part of life for many people and an increasing number of home and other property buyers look for Feng Shui compliant homes and offices. A real estate agent can largely benefit by knowing the application of Feng Shui techniques in homes, office and other buildings.

Here are a few Feng Shui tips that a real estate agent can use.

1. A building should have adequate windows for energy to flow freely.

2. Always keep the entrance tidy and clutter free for unhindered flow of Chi.

3. There shouldn't be anything in line with the front door such as a tree or telegraph pole, if so; one can fix this by placing a Bagua mirror over the door on the outside.

4. Since we spend 1/3 of our lives sleeping, it is vital to create more harmony in the bedroom. The bed should be positioned in such a way that the occupants can see the door. This gives one an inner feeling of security. As much as possible, position the bed away from the door.

5. Always keep the bathroom doors closed and toilet lids down to avoid negative energy (Sha).

6. Avoid sleeping under ceiling beams as this could cut the energy.

As more and more home buyers and sellers discover Feng Shui, it is advantageous for real estate agents to learn what it is and how it's used. Feng Shui techniques can help a real estate agent to provide Feng Shui solutions, enjoy quicker closings, receive more referrals, increase income, and get an edge over competitors.
