Purchasing a piece of land is a significant decision, so it’s only natural for people to put a lot of thought into the specifics of the real estate property that they are putting their money into. Before finalizing the purchase, you’d of course want to consider the location of the lot, the area surrounding it, and how to best use the land for your intended purpose.

It’s also a good idea to have it looked at by a Feng Shui expert who can reveal details about the property that may affect your luck. Uncle Dixer has received a question from someone who wants to know if acquiring a specific property will provide them with advantages. Here’s what he has to say.

Dear Uncle Dixer: My question is I’m looking for land to build on. It’s on a small lane with houses on either side (east and west facing) and there is also a lot at the end of the lane that is North facing. It has a roundabout in the front. Is it okay to buy the lot? Also, the shape of the lot is not rectangular.

Answer: Every plot of land has its advantages and disadvantages, especially if it is located in an urban setting.

The idea in Feng Shui is to improve the lot’s luck or take advantage of what is advantageous and to avoid its harmfulness or turn what is disadvantageous into something useful. For example, being in a cul-de-sac is a dead-end, but this location also has privacy and quietness.

Make sure that when you design your house, there is enough space where cars can maneuver. Also, make sure that there is enough protection for traffic that is coming towards your house. That way, the car has to turn around when it’s coming directly to your house.

You said the land is North facing, which means you can have a very sunny backyard. You can open your house to the back and protect it from the front and so forth. Buy the land only if you like it and if it has the infrastructure to support you. Make sure you get a good architect who can respond to the context of the site, or find a suitable project home to put on the land. Then, you will have good Feng Shui.
