I often find myself property-scouting with clients for properties to buy and live in. Feng Shui was only introduced to the U.S. on a large scale very recently; hence, most houses were not designed with Feng Shui principles in mind. Finding a good Feng Shui House can be like looking for a needle in the proverbial haystack.
In most cases, you’ll need some Feng Shui suggestions before moving in, which includes colors, materials, furniture layout, etc. But nothing structural.
In some other cases, and depending on the budget, you may be thinking of a more structural renovation, like adding a master suite or a second floor.
Either way, creating a good Feng Shui house from an existing house where Feng Shui was not taken into account requires less time and it is less expensive than trying to find the perfect Feng Shui house “ready to go”.
The fastest and easier way to do it right is to do it with a professional.
I receive dozens of calls every month by frustrated home-buyers trying to do it themselves by searching online or reading a book. Real Feng Shui is very complicated and it takes years to learn and hundreds of case studies to master.
If you really want to learn it, we are happy to have you in our Feng Shui Training Center and you can read more about it here.
Or, if you are to busy to learn it, you can hire us to review a property for you and have your solution to a perfect Feng Shui house pronto.
In my experience, here is what most home owner ask for. See if any of them can work for you:
1) Inspect a Property Before it’s Purchased (to ensure it is a worthwhile building).
Some properties need more corrections than others, which implies an increase in budget to do the corrections with. During a pre-purchase inspection I inform my clients on what is needed to be done and they can then get a quote for its implementation BEFORE acquiring the property. This is the most effective way to financially plan your purchase and your Feng Shui improvements all at once. This is done during escrow, or, preferably, before making an offer, which can save you the escrow’s associated costs on the wrong property.
2) Move-In Consultation.
This is done after the property has been purchased and happens sometime between the closing of escrow and the moment you get the moving truck at your door. During this time I visit the premises and make recommendations in terms of colors, materials, and furniture layout so when the truck actually delivers your items the walls are already painted in the right colors and you know where to place your main furniture. This is by far the most popular consultation of all.
3) Renovation Consulting. This is often done after the property has been purchased, and the new owner has already planned for it, with the associated construction budget needed. It is often done when the property in question is very old, or is in unsuitable condition, or the new owner simply wants to do some structural upgrades to it before moving in. This consultation is more complex than #2 and it could be more extensive and require a larger budget. It will probably involve an architect, or a designer or contractor of some kind as well. From a Feng Shui standpoint, this can also be the most effective way to change the energy of a property by incorporating the Feng Shui corrections during the redesign stage.
