Feng Shui Real Estate Development Tip: Front Entrance Water Element

Adding simple Feng Shui enhancements to the design concepts of a real estate development can be very beneficial to enhancing sales for residential and commercially utilized buildings. Why? Because 37% of buyers, follow the principles of Feng Shui with those buying on Long Island (and the percentage keeps increasing). The image above illustrates a very simple Feng Shui principle to keep in mind for the front entrance of a buildings exterior (if possible).

A base principle in Feng Shui is to have water by the front entrance. Adding a real water fountain or water feature is a great way to create strong welcoming energy. This is also beneficial for those occupying the space because its an "activation cure" that bring s in auspicious (good) energy into the building. The view of gentle moving water near the front entrance is also a metaphor of improving life opportunities.  The image above is a water wall fountain that pulls the energy toward the front entrance vs being more directional.

Laura - the whole Feng Shui thing is certainly osmething I have no idea about. It sounds very foregn to me. Like many other new things (at least to me) I am not that quick to embrace.

Love the concept of having water by the entrance. So, for me sounds like a very small step in the right direction :)

Interesting tip Laura, I never suspected that it would be that beneficial to set up a fountain by the door.

That is an interesting tip, especially in light of the almost 40% of buyers who may be looking for the right Feng Shui.
