Feng Shui is "not" about superstition, religion or philosophy, nor is it an occult practice.
Feng Shui is the study of ENERGY and how energy impacts and shapes your home, health, wealth, family, communication, and reputation.
Everything in the Universe is ENERGY.
Feng Shui observes the energy and cycles of the solar system, and the energy inside and outside a house to determine the BEST homes for you to live in.
As a human being, you are one of EIGHT Chinese elements. You have four "power directions" and four SHA (bad) directions.
It’s VITAL to your life and livelihood that you know and honor these directions during work, rest, play and when buying property.
Is to unite TIME, SPACE, PEOPLE and the ENVIRONMENT as one integral entity, so that energy flows dynamically and effortlessly in, as, around and through you.
When this is accomplished, HAPPINESS and SUCCESS occur, naturally.
GOOD lots, locations, floor plans, architecture, design, décor and placement are based on East/West principles of energy and quantum physics.
We are the only Feng Shui school that teaches this to professionals and individuals, worldwide.
Based on your Feng Shui Element, a house will either EMPOWER you or deplete your life force energy.
Likewise, the LOCATION of a house on a lot, the LOCATION of a lot on a street and the FENG SHUI of a floor plan are "all" critical factors for you to consider "thoroughly" BEFORE buying a home.
What you don’t know about Feng Shui in real estate can hurt you and your BUYERS.
What you do know "correctly" about this art and science, will help you market and sell property in record time.
Learn what "screams" BUY ME, versus losing a buyer to bad Feng Shui.
As a Seller, it benefits you "immensely" to learn all that you can about Feng Shui principles and the law of attraction.
There is more to Feng Shui that meets the eye. What’s beautiful décor is not always supportive and life enriching ENERGY for your clients.
If you want to be of TRUE SERVICE, it’s imperative that you learn the core principles of Feng Shui, INSIDE/OUT.
You are the game changers for people seeking commercial buildings and houses that support and enrich lives and careers.
Feng Shui CERTIFICATION is not an option for you. It is a requirement for the people you serve.

Taking on a fixer-upper as your real estate investment opportunity entails a series of steps that must be taken to bring the value of the property up. With so much in any property that could use some work, the process of enhancing a fixer-upper can seem daunting even before hammering in the first nail. That process can be a long and arduous one, but with the right steps taken, you can fix the things within the home that quickly and permanently raise its property value.
The thought process of what to improve should be done before ever getting involved with a real estate transaction. Visualize how a property will look with some of the improvements you want to do to it. Will it look better and draw more interested buyers? This is the key component to consider when trying to decide what to fix and what to leave as it is.
Curb appeal, for example, exists as a term because it does help the value of your home. A few small steps that improve the outward appearance of a home such as new flowers, a cleaned up front porch and other superficial improvements that can be done with minimal cost if you do your own work will help sell a potential buyer on even considering your property.
Inside, small touches like outlet covers and curtains can give the home a brighter, more modern feel that communicates value to a potential buyer. With minimal effort and minimal cost, these types of things can be taken care of and while you may not think they add much tangible value to the home, they show well to the buyer and that's really what home improvements in a fixer-upper are all about. Always keep in mind what a potential home buyer will see when they entire the home.
You've heard it before and it is indeed true, bathrooms make a big statement to a potential home buyer. Spending a couple thousand dollars in a bathroom to make it look cleaner and more modern can add significant value to a home.
Add value to a home that would appeal to the broadest range of potential buyers possible. Would most buyers like floral wall paper? Probably not, so skip that improvement. Would most buyers value a fresh coat of paint in a neutral color? Most likely, so maybe that is an area you can spend money in.
Of course, many fixer-uppers will need larger repairs and sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and make those investments. While you may not see an exponential increase in value by adding a new furnace, those kinds of steps have to be made and you will see an increase in value by making the home more livable than it was when you purchased it.
Always be sure to keep in mind that the value you're looking to add should be easily communicated to the customer and when the time finally comes to sell the property, make sure you list all that you did in order to get as much good faith with potential buyers as possible. Did you add sealant to the windows? Note that and talk about the benefits sealant can have on insulating a home properly. Especially in a climate of rising energy prices, such an improvement might take on greater meaning if you put it in context of just how much energy it saves. Selling a home is marketing and after doing all the work you've done on a fixer-upper, make sure you get credit. It would be a shame to go around a property adding small touches that are unseen by a buyer because you fail to mention them.
