Selecting a Good Property - Harnessing Water at the Right Time and Place

Eight Courtyards @ Yishun
The article in this series serves as an example to assist home buyers to qualify for a good investment property or properties that could enjoy good Feng Shui and good Return on Investment or ROI with a mean to hedge against inflation. It also acts as an illustration to share the knowledge of Classical Feng Shui principles that could be used to assess a good property. This is based on the recent Eight Courtyards at Yishun and Waterview at Tampines.

Generally, it is always favourable to have your property near natural and real water bodies. Water bodies can be water pond, waterway, etc, and it is should be clear and slow moving for water flow. If there is no natural water to be seen near the vicinity of your property, then have one or made one in your courtyard, like a swimming pool, pond or an aquarium in your living space.

Siteplan of Eight Courtyards @ Yishun
As an illustration, the 3 tower blocks (circled in Red) facing the swimming pool in the centre from the Southwest, East and North, could be benefiting from the water at the Right Time and Place. Furthermore, they are also protected from their neighbouring blocks on both sides. 

In the current times, many commercial developments, such as the hotels, mega shopping malls, as well as many residential housing sites have water bodies near or within them, like the water fountains, swimming pools, etc, They are usually located either outside the properties facade or within the building site. There are numerous Chinese sayings, like “穴前明堂正中处,喜得丽水聚天心” and “水聚天心,富贵万金”, etc. These verses literally mean that it is always good to have water in the property’s facade or within the development site, ushering Wealth luck to the residents.

Waterview @ Tampines
Although it is good for a property to near “water”, at some situation, it is unfavourable to face one as it may influence the Wealth and People luck of the residents based on Feng Shui perspective. We have now in Period 8, which starts from 2004 to 2023. Units facing Southwest water are always superior to others. Besides Southwest, units facing water in the North, East and Southeast are also suitable choices in this period of time.

In additional, try to avoid selecting units facing too close to the building edges of your neighbouring blocks, especially if the edges are pointing directly to your unit, as it may affect the well-being of the residents.

Till then, happy home hunting….
