Recently, I notice there were various new BTO projects being launched at one time. Imagine as a new home buyer (applies to new condo as well), one would be faced with a glut of choices. If this is not overwhelming enough, adding in various criteria and priorities such the type of layout, number of rooms, facing and pricing… the list goes on.
Well, if you add feng shui to part of the selection, the considerations get even more mind boggling.
If you are concern or on the fence over feng shui matters, should you be particular about it at this point while getting your new home?
I thought it may be useful to share the "what" and "how", and some things a layman may wish to know when getting their dream house.
Each property’s feng shui has influence on the wealth, health (most of you would know these 2) as well as relationship aspect of occupiers too. The key to this depends on its surrounding, floor plan layout and time factor.
So when choosing your choice units, some examples you should be aware of:
The above are some questions one may wish to consider before committing.
Imagine if you are buying any of the BTO units per below (image A), some considerations are:
a. there are 3 different facing from this block, which facing has better feng shui grade?
b. this block faces a river, which unit can tap on this river for wealth luck?
c. are there any units to pick or to avoid?
It is a big plus if you are able to already select one unit that has a better feng shui during this selection stage.
Don’t most homebuyers only engage for feng shui related service when the house is ready?
Yes. Presently, most home buyers that I notice are buying first before checking on feng shui aspect. However, in the event of having a house with a less than desired feng shui, feng shui remedy would have to be implement. Some feng shui issues do not have remedies.
So if we put things in perspective, one can avoid units with negative feng shui. It is certainly always better to have a unit with average or excellent feng shui than one that requires patches/remedies later.
How can you get units with good feng shui before even construction?
Base on the facing, surrounding of site plan, along with the unit’s floor plan, we can ascertain and assess the likely feng shui grade quality. This allows us to filter which unit is better based on a preliminary assessment approach.
An assessment audit process revolves on:
In fact, by filtering out units with negative feng shui, that is half the battle won!
In summary, buying a house in SG is always possibly the highest priced item you would pay in life. Not to forget, you would spend years staying at this house of yours. By understanding the feng shui of your unit, one can certainly benefit from a better feng shui grade unit or property. On the flip side, you can also avoid property units with poorer grade of feng shui.
