I receive some questions as the owner faces some dilemma of choices for her BTO selection exercise at Kim Keat. One of her question was, among the choice units (circled in red), the buyer was not sure where is the main facing. Is this determine by the main door? Isn’t it the same?
If you are a new home owner, this can come across as confusing. Most people are often unsure and understandably make assumption.
Why is this important?
Importance of main door and front facing of property differences
The main door is like the mouth of the house and qi to the house is 'received' in from here. As such, it is hence critical and need to be at a prosperous sector of the house with good qi. It is afterall considered as 阳宅三要 - '3 must haves' in a residential property.
The prosperous sector of the house is then determined by where the property faces. How do you determine that? A rule of thumb is to take the property's side with the most window facing. This facing usually also has more movement. (e.g. facing main road, or facing a park) This is one of the area which we use to as part of our process to determine the fengshui grading of the property.
Hence, the front facing of the house is not the same as the main door.
Hope you see the connection. Through these selection criteria, we can then help filter and select a choice unit. Cream of the crop choice.
I would share other selection headaches that may easily be overlooked by home buyers encountered in my next post.
