Real Estate Feng Shui: Putting Your House in Order To Sell
Today, as more and more people become familiar with Feng Shui, it's being used by many Realtors to enhance the buying or selling process. Feng Shui, the Chinese art of home design, can offer both the buyer and seller help in choosing a place that will meet their needs.
Feng Shui, involves not only an assessment of the land upon which the house sits, but its relationship to the streets, the nearby structures, and the design of the house itself. By paying attention to the more traditional principles of Feng Shui as well as more current ideas of curb appeal and staging a house to sell, the entire process of buying or selling a house can be made much more effortless.
One of the first things to consider is the concept of "chi" or energy. Chi flows in much the same way a stream of water would flow. Imagine that flow throughout your house and if there are obstructions, as in the case of misplaced furniture, or clutter or walls, this will create a less comfortable "feel" in the house.
When you are trying to sell a house, move furniture away from doorways and place it in along the edges of the room. This will create more space for the new owner to visualize their furniture in the home, as well as creating a smoother flow of chi. A completely empty house is not the answer either as the chi will move too quickly in an empty space. Balance is the key.
If you are selling your house, you have to understand that the way you live in a house and the way you sell their house are two different situations. It's a good idea to pack up as much as possible and put it in storage. You are going to have to move it eventually, so sooner is better in this case. This allows for more space within the home and eliminates all the personal distractions from view. You don't want the buyer to be so fascinated with your belongings that they can't envision themselves in the house.
