7 Secrets To Sell Your Home With Feng Shui

Feng Shui is an ancient practice based on practical tools to boost intention and energy through mindful decorating. While there is always one loose canon, better known as free will, (which supersedes our physical environment), feng shui does influence energy should you choose to believe in its power. And that power can be very helpful when trying to sell your home!

Last week I held a decorating class at the Brentwood Library. Afterwards one of the guests came up to me and asked a really great question: “What are some of the best tools to sell a house?”

This is a great question because many people utilize the western practice of Feng Shui to help sell their homes. If you are in the process of selling your home here are 7 Secrets To Sell Your Home With Feng Shui and move it quickly.

Arrange a welcoming environment.

This may come off as obvious, but you’d be surprised at how many homes I go into that are on the market, that are truly less than par. In fact, I once viewed a home that had panty hose hanging up in the dining room right off the entrance. That is not a good first impression. Create a space that looks and feels good.

Create Flow

Always have easy to navigate pathways throughout your home. Again, this may seem obvious, but cluttered walkways are no way to sell a home. Dictate how you want the prospective buyer to navigate your home. Allow it to unfold so they can experience it in a way that they can imagine living there…..it’s all about conveying a feeling of joy.

Appeal to the senses

Create an environment. People buy based on emotion. Envelop that buyer in a soothing atmosphere to make that first impression count. Soft sounds, lovely scents, beautiful interiors….it all counts so leave nothing out.


We have a close connection to nature. Unfortunately, most of us spend a lot of time indoors. Plants and fountains are a terrific way to bring the outdoors in. Fountains create soothing sounds and plants clean the air and soften corners.


Always provide good lighting. It can make or break your space. Lighting lifts the energy and creates mood in a space.

Intentional Selling

This is a big one. If you are subconsciously not ready to sell your home, you energetically hold on to it. You must release it, let it go to allow for new opportunities to flow into your life.

Attitude adjustment

This ties in with intentional selling. If you are energetically ready to sell, the universe will move mountains. Don’t get yourself caught up in the reckless chatter that those around you say. “The market is bad”, “Homes in your area are not selling”, “You’ll never get that price”….whatever it is, create a clear intention of what you do want, and stick with it, everything else will fall into place.
