Today I’m coming to you with a quick video and I want to talk about Feng Shui and selling real estate. If you have your home or your
commercial real estate on the market right now but you’re not having a lot of response, then you definitely want to take a look at the feng shui of the space.
Now, if you follow me for a while, you know proper feng shui there’s a lot of nitty gritty details in terms of the – I’m not all about those
“fast food” feng shui and unfortunately, I’m not one of those consultants who would give general ideas that may or may not work for your particular listing.
And in fact, those generalized ideas might actually do more harm rather than good but what I would suggest is if your listing is something that has been languishing in the market for a while you wanna take a look at your front door – especially for residential – your front door, your kitchen, as well as the bedrooms. And you (might) wanna bring in a a classically trained – preferably in Flying Star Feng Shui consultant to be able to pinpoint where are the wealth energies that we’re currently going through and activate those wealth corners and – we know in classical feng shui there’s more than just one wealth corner.
Activate that so that you can finally get your listing off the market.
Now with that being said, I’ve just recently come across another feng shui enthusiast. And she mention to me that.. she knows of a million dollar listing here in Toronto, Canada that has been on the market for quite a few months now and they brought in a classical feng shui consultant.
I do know that consultant and I know she does really great work and she’s someone that I admire as well. But this lady that I met said it was still not working because the house is still on the market.
Well, I took a look at the house. And it was – all the recommendations were spot on but when I really looked at the outside of that house,
I realized, this is not really a million dollar market, you know?
It’s not a million-dollar area.
The house – just across from it is a little bungalow (that is) not very well maintained. And the other houses down the street
were kind of in the same shape, you know? In the same form of level of maintenance.
So, even if.. Now, we’re being realistic here and – I, as a feng shui consultant, I’ve never promised feng shui as the magical twirl; that you do feng shui and everything will change overnight. That’s never been the intention.
The intention of feng shui especially the way we do it is to obviously, to navigate the energy that is already there and then boost it
up as much as possible.
But if you look at this house that I was looking at, even though all the feng shui recommendations were spot on, all the logical stuff unfortunately was a little bit off, you know?
The old real estate saying, “Buy the cheapest house in the most expensive neighborhood.”
That’s the smartest thing to do as opposed to buying the more expensive piece of real estate in a cheap neighborhood. And that, unfortunately, is the case for this house.
It’s a million dollar house – 1.2 (million) in fact, I think. It’s the asking price in a neighborhood that doesn’t really command that kind of interest. Right?
So, even with the feng shui, that did bring the foot traffic in, the buyers are obviously still doing – well, they don’t know about the feng shui portion for one but they go through the house and they’d look at the neighborhood and they’re going through the check marks that they’re likely gonna have; and they’re probably gonna think the same thing that I did.
And it was a very obvious and a very big problem that this specific listing was having. So again, that’s.. I guess this is.. my comment with regards to that listing still being on the market. It’s, you know, feng shui-wise; it has been remedied but the fact that it’s still on the market, you know, the seller needs to.. and in fact, the real estate agent also needs to look at the other logical realistic things as well. Right?
I have helped a lot of my clients sell their listings. And these are usually the ones where – you know, structurally, they look great… close to public transit, close to a good school, close to parks or whatever. It checks a lot (and) ticks a lot of boxes, but for some reason, it’s still on the market. Those are the ones where once you add in that feng shui elements that it does get off; (and) it does move very very quickly after that.
The fastest that I’ve gotten as my feedback was four hours. And then, you know, my other clients – they will have their homes or their commercial properties listed for a few months and then a few weeks after we did the proper feng shui, then it finally… you know, they finally got rid of it.
So, as much as I would like to give you generalized tips on how to sell your real estate through feng shui… My best advice really is to invest in a classically trained consultant so they can help you with that. Or if you find that you can find one in your area, I can do it long distance as well. Feel free to look me up my website is FengShuiAndProsper.com. Let’s have a chat and see if it would be something that you
would be interested to proceed with me.
Anyway, this is a little bit of a rant today.. but anyway, I wanted to share that bit of insight in terms of feng shui and real estate.
And if you have any questions, feel free to email me at Safrina@FengShuiAndProsper.com. And hopefully, I’ll be able to hear from you. If not, I’ll see you on my next video!
