From looking for a new job and starting a business to finding and moving into a new home, many of us make the most of a new year by embarking on a new milestone. The Year of the Metal Rat brings with it a promise of a fresh start. If investing and settling in a forever home is on top of your list, finding the right property should be a priority.

It’s not enough that you choose a towering skyscraper that looks good on brochures – you need to consider its location, the comfort you’ll get, the amenities, and the security it promises as well. If you believe and follow the principles of Feng Shui, you can also use it as a guide in choosing the right property. According to Feng Shui, there are features you can look into to see if a property is auspicious or not. Here are some of them:

An ideal location harnesses positive energy

When buying a home, it’s a must to choose an accessible location with enough transportation options. Taking into consideration the principles of Feng Shui, you need to pick an area with good energy as this affects the property. To ensure good quality energy, the location needs to be safe and the building has a well-lit and bright lobby or main entry.

A pleasant neighborhood adds to a property’s Chi

How do you make sure an area’s safe and ideal to live in? Aside from its cleanliness, you need to consider the entire neighborhood where it belongs. Pick a property that’s located where there are different activities happening – such as an area near a park or a clubhouse – as vacant areas tend to equate to inactive energy.

To ensure wealth and vitality, it’s important that the water is clean.

A floor plan that welcomes good luck and positive energy

When it’s time to pick a unit where you’ll live, Feng Shui experts suggest getting a unit on a higher floor as with only a few units above you, the lighter the energy for your condo, with more light, and a good view. As much as possible, avoid getting a unit that directly faces an elevator or a staircase. If you’re schedule to visit the property, note the floor plan of the unit as well as it affects the flow of energy. It’s essential that energy can flow freely around your space.
