Feng Shui is a common practice when it comes to prepping a home for sale, as it is the practice of arranging objects within a home to achieve harmony with one’s environment. Here are eight costly Feng Shui mistakes made in the real estate transaction and ways to avoid them.
1. By far the biggest mistake is “not believing” that Feng Shui works in marketing and selling property, faster.
2. No specific target – Feng Shui works best when you focus on a specific goal or target area of a property that needs attention. Feng Shui “remedies” are more important than “enhancements” but both are critically important to a sale.
3. Believing that Feng Shui is about the occult, astrology and superstition and that it has nothing to do with real estate, is not only a mistake, but a myth too. Feng Shui is the study of Quantum Physics – energy – how “energy flows” in, through and around land, homes, offices and listings. It has nothing to do with philosophy or religion.
Jump outside the box of the “mundane” (bad news and press) and learn “proven” sales and marketing techniques that work in any market, economy or country and start selling property in record time.
You are “only” limited by limited thinking.
4. Feng Shui is not difficult if you have an accredited and passionate practitioner that is guiding you. However, one of the biggest mistakes Sales Agents make is “over-doing” remedies and enhancements to property after googling some quick Feng Shui tips online. Even after studying Feng Shui for the past 3 + years i feel that 10-20 years later, Feng Shui masters are still learning and evolving as our living conditions evolve as well. Applying traditional Feng Shui principles to the new cosmetically enhanced real estate industry is a challenge in its self. Sales agent need to realize that incorrect Feng Shui applications can actually result in worse results when selling property.
5. Most Agents mistake staging with furniture for Feng Shui. These are two “very” different modalities. One is simply showing the potential clients what a home or business can look like while furnished.
Feng Shui has nothing to do with decorating. It’s an art and science that uses the Ba-gua (NINE square grid), Yin/Yang theory and give elements to bring “land and structures” into harmony and balance. The goal of good Feng Shui is to create “positive life force” energy that takes a buyer’s breath away.
6. Skipping to the fun part of Feng Shui by overlooking clutter and debris inside and outside a property is another common mistake agents may make.
Space clearing clutter is one of the most powerful ways of shifting energy. It’s an effective agent of positive change that helps to bring a property into balance. A balanced property sells 10 times faster than one that is cluttered and/or missing one or more of the five elements.
7. Ignoring “proper” placement, missing corners, poison arrows and other “glaring” Feng Shui problems is a common problem of real estate professionals. Failure to correct and/or remedy such problems is detrimental to the marketability of “any” property.
Proven templates, techniques, enhancements and remedies for Feng Shui work and work fast when using those “designed” specifically for real estate.
8. Not completing all the Feng Shui remedies and enhancements for a home, office or commercial building, leaves your listing out of balance.
A “balanced” property acts like a magnet to attract buyers and contract activity. In addition, a balanced listing creates friendlier relations (buyers, sellers and agents), easier transactions and smoother closings!Book Now
