Property Investment: Get Ahead With Feng Shui

There are many considerations to be made when purchasing a property for investment purposes and Feng Shui features is one of them.

Property is considered one of the perennial favourites when it comes to investing. This is due to the fact that there is a strong possibility for property values to rise in the market, generating quick capital gains as a result. On top of that, you can get a steady flow of income out of the property through monthly rentals if you choose to rent it out. It all sounds easy assuming you already have the capital to indulge in property investment but the main problem of course is determining whether or not the property you invest in has the potential to grow in terms of value and demand.

Both property investors and developers alike tend to face this problem. In order for a development to be successful, it must have the potential to grow and attract buyers and demand especially when it comes to new large-scale developments like those you often see happening in the outskirts of Klang Valley such as Bandar Tun Hussein Onn, Puchong and Sungai Buloh. A development that fails to attract demand can easily break a company.

The same rules apply when it comes to property investment. The main idea is to invest in a piece of property that is capable of rising in value so that it will be profitable. This is where Feng Shui will come in handy. It is an open secret that many top property developers here in Malaysia maximise their potential by applying Feng Shui principles to their development. This in return will bring positive Qi to the development, maximising its potential to grow and directly affecting its value in terms of demand.

Having a property developer that is Feng Shui-savvy is only half the job done. For the property investor, having some knowledge of Feng Shui can also help ensure that the eventual purchase will be one that can reap the most rewards in terms of profitability. Different types of landforms could complement different types of industries.

For instance, if you are investing in a piece of land which is being earmarked for tourism, you may want to check if the land has supportive features for that industry such as Water element landforms with wavy-shaped mountains being one example. If you are interested in investing in commercial property, you may want to observe if there are any Earth element mountains in the vicinity which are the desirable landforms that support commercial structures such as shopping malls.

As you can see, mountains play an important role in external environment analysis. However, remember to avoid harsh, hard and rocky-looking mountains as they produce negative Qi. Other than that, you need to take note of the water forms in the area that are calm and gentle such as ponds and lakes as these water forms help collect Qi. A water form that curves around the property is also considered auspicious.

Both mountains and water forms have to be present and balanced in an area as it represents the interaction of Yin and Yang. This harmonious interaction will encourage the circulation of beneficial Qi in an environment. One must also not forget about the presence of the Bright Hall (Ming Tang) in the area. It is basically an open or empty space for Qi to collect and preferably located in front of a structure or an entrance.

Feng Shui is not as complex as it seems to be in this matter. Admittedly, there are a lot of other things to watch out for when it comes to Feng Shui but a simple audit can save a lot of time and effort for investors when it comes to property hunting. Indeed, some knowledge of this profound subject could do wonders in the long run for property investors searching for the best and most profitable property there is in the market.
