Selling a Home With the Art of Feng Shui

Feng Shui is the ancient art and science of how we are affected by our environment. When it is applied correctly it makes you feel nourished, comfortable, secure, happy, and it even relieves stress. Here’s how you can apply these timeless practices when looking to sell your home.

Selling and preparing to sell a home can be very stressful, tiring, and frustrating, as well as costly and time consuming. Despite the stress, aim to feel good and clear during the process, as you’ll want to sell your house with ease. Here are some easy tips to work on before considering selling your house:

Have you heard of space clearing? The five big D’s are very important!

De-cluttering—Too much of anything in a room can amount to a visually smaller space. It may not physically be smaller, but with clutter, it will definitely seem smaller!

De-personalizing—Too much stimuli, like personal pictures or décor, can take away the focus and interest of the buyer quickly.

Detailing —Detailing means making sure things work and taking care of the needed repairs. In Feng Shui, if something does not work (no matter how minor), you have bad “chi” and undesired stress. Things mount up and begin to worry us psychologically—many buyers will consider this an opportunity to barter.

Deep cleaning— A deep cleaning can affect a buyer’s emotions tremendously. Buyers are offended when a home is shown dirty and smelly. Make sure you deep clean the home from top to bottom in order to keep the buyer’s interest.

Dynamizing —Using this checklist will create a balanced and magnetic environment that readies you to list your house for sale—it’s show time!

Here are 8 of the most important areas to work on when selling your house using Feng Shui:
• Curb appeal
• The walk to the front door
• The entrance
• The foyer
• Room of first impression
• The overall flow
• Kitchen
• Master bedroom

Is the use of plants in the house beneficial? Plants are a big part of Feng Shui. When set in the right places, it creates tranquility, health benefits, and adds beauty. A NASA study has also shown that house plants assist in removing toxins from indoor air, increasing energy and health, and reducing noise. Through the art of Feng Shui, you will be able to sell your home in no time! May the “chi” be with you!
