Feng Shui in Vancouver Real Estate

With a 20% Inventory vs Sale ratio, Vancouver’s real estate market is finding its zen, after years of rocketing highs and some media lows. 

For home buyers, this means more selection and less competitive bidding, meaning they can feel comfortable searching for a home that feels right, instead of right now. 

And that feeling can be found by using a little feng shui in your home search. 

Feng shui is channelling positive energy or qi into a person’s life, through proper arrangement of living spaces. Its origins are as old as Chinese civilization, and an expression of how the ancient Chinese saw their relationship with the universe. 

4,000 years ago, Chinese capitals aligned themselves along a north-south axis and today, this continues, evidenced by Beijing’s grid layout. 

Achieve Home Buying Zen  

For homebuyers, the location, area or neighbourhood of a potential home — called sectors — can harness feng shui, enhancing their careers and livelihoods. 

Though often thought of in terms of interior design, feng shui also applies to a home’s physical location. 

Vancouver’s unique landscape and neighbourhoods make it easy for buyers to find their little piece of zen. 

Vancouver-based Feng Shui expert Marlyna Los breaks down different sectors thusly:

SW – anything to do with property investments, insurance and real estate.

South – technology, beauty, metaphysics, life transformation, optician, telecommunications

SE – gardening, fashion, architecture, academic and scholarly pursuits, education, coaching

East – sports, physical related work, agriculture, physical movement

NE – conventional healing, well being, fitness, body or mind improvements

North – consulting, trading, logistics, aquatics

NW – accounting, finance, legal, military, anything to do with regulations

If you’re an accountant or lawyer, a house located within northwest Vancouver’s neighbourhoods such as Dunbar or Point Grey — or a northwest corner of your favourite city block — will enhance your concentration and career pursuits. 

Naturally, many people within these professions have gravitated to these areas. It makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

East Vancouver’s demographics appeal to vibrant, active homebuyers, as well as those young at heart. As Los says, East represents sports and physical movement, hence a large number of cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts who hike, kayak and ski/snowboard. 

Also, East Vancouver is home to burgeoning urban agricultural initiatives, where many homeowners use their property to cultivate vegetables for donation to the less fortunate, teaching their children the value of taking care of the Earth.
