One Simple Feng Shui Tip to help Sell Your Home Quickly.
Day #242 of #365 Days of Feng Shui
ONE OF MY CLIENTS HAD A FEW DIFFICULTIES WITH SELLING HER HOME RECENTLY.
Her husband had passed away and she was downsizing and moving to a retirement villa.
When I assessed her home, one of the first things that captured my attention was a 5.5 foot high hedge that surrounded the front of the home.
This hedge was like having a big brick wall right in front of her home and was, unfortunately, slowing down the flow of Qi entering her home, created a ‘blocking’ energy and didn’t provide an open and welcoming feel to any potential buyers.
Along with some other Feng Shui recommendations, one of the main suggestions I made was to trim the hedge down to a height that would allow people to see the front of the home easily (approx 2-3 feet) and to create a free flow of energy to and from the house. Releasing that block or walled exterior.
When I followed up with the client a few weeks later she told me she incorporated most of the Feng Shui changes I suggested.
AFTER A MONTH OR SO THE HOME HAD STILL NOT SOLD.
But after some investigation I realised the hedge was still at full height.
YOU SEE…THE HEDGE ACTUALLY HELD A LOT OF SENTIMENTAL VALUE FOR MY CLIENT.
This was her husband’s (now deceased) pride and joy. He planted the hedge when they first moved into the house and he tended to it over the years and had a lot of pride in growing it.
Even upon the suggestion that the hedge should be trimmed down, my client’s adult children (who didn’t live at the home) voiced that they were also against it. The suggestion even created tension within the family.
A few more months passed and my client’s house hadn’t sold.
The date for my client to buy and move to her retirement villa was fast approaching. And if she didn’t sell the home quickly, she would lose the deposit on her villa and potentially not be able to move.
ON A WHIM MY CLIENT CALLED HER GARDENER.
And told him to ‘trim that bloody hedge down’.
The hedge was trimmed to about 2.5 feet in height.
And within a 1.5 weeks her home sold!!
When your emotionally connected to your home, the one that nurtured your family and held your dreams and loved ones, it’s sometimes hard to release the connection.
In this case, cutting down her hedge, felt like the final release of her husband, his passing and her connection to him within this home. This also allowed the energy to open up and allow transition of her next phase in life and the welcoming of new occupants.
