House-hunting with Feng Shui in mind
Source : Star Property (Sep Issue)
Date : 23 Sep 2013

Most people tend to feel a connection between a hefty price tag and the house of their dream. While this may be true for most cases, some parts of this statement remain debatable, especially when property Feng Shui evaluation comes into the picture. In Feng Shui study, an expensive property doesn't necessary comes with good Feng Shui formation.

Truth to the matter is, Feng Shui isn't about how much per square feet your property worth. It is more about the external environment, the mountain, the water features and the immediate physical setting, and how all these factors work together to build a good Feng Shui arrangement that benefits the occupants of a property.

As such, a multi-million dollar house may not automatically translate into a multi-million dollar worth of good Feng Shui formation. It's absurd to think how people "derive" their Feng Shui perspective from the pigeonhole view of the price tag alone!

When it comes to choosing a property, it is best to say that your choice is not solely based on matters such as architectural design or the colour of the wall or the location of the pool.

To uncover a property with good direction, you need to put on your Feng Shui thinking cap.

How do you know if a property developer has done the Feng Shui homework for you?

Any property with positive direction can be considered as a "good" property. Before you even consider other factors, the property direction will tell you exactly what you need to know about the house, sort of like an introductory summary for a book.

If a house faces an unfavourable direction, the occupants inside the house would be afflicted with the same inauspicious outcome too. This holds true for most cases.

Start by observing the façade of the house. This refers to the direction to which the house was designed to face. The most common mistake that people make while taking a direction is to assume that they use the Main Door as the reference point.

Always use the facing direction, instead of the Main Door. Once this has been ascertained, stand in the middle of the property façade, look out and by using a compass, obtain the facing direction of the property.

By matching the facing direction of your property and your personalized life star directions, you will have a rough idea on how to determine the favourability of a property.

Each of us has our own favourable or unfavourable Feng Shui direction, obtained from our individual "Xuan Kong nine life star". Each Life Star is unique and it dictates a person's character and how the environment influences a person.

Once the house direction is determined, the next step is to work out the external environment of your property. There are several ways to do this, but the most common one is to drive around within a one to two km radius of the house or land of your choice and observe the macro environment and look for these indicators:

  • Natural mountains and locations of water. These two formations improve the feng shui outlook of a vicinity.
  • In the same spot, check for any negative presence of highway or busy road located in close proximity to the property.
  • Check and ensure there's no pylon or big trees blocking the view from the main door.
  • No steep road in front and at the back of the property.
  • The property should sit on land that is preferably square or at least, rectangular in shape.
  • The presence of wide open spaces such as a park, pond or lakes. These features allow Qi to gather.

Final piece of advice: when it comes to finding a good piece of land or property in Feng Shui, the goal should always be finding a place that you can renovate to improve and fine tune in the future. Happy house-hunting!
