Inviting Living Room
Usually people moving on to new homes spend a lot on the new property and wait to sell off the old one soon. Buyers come and buyers go and no deals are finalized. The old home is left closed, unclean or in neglect most often. People justify this by saying that we are as  it is going to sell this property so why send even a dime here.  And thus they do get buyers but they will valuate your home for  much less amounts and you are stuck up  with either selling for very less  or waiting for the right client.
 One of the reasons here may be your home is not in good condition. Home staging is one of the most in thing today and there are many individuals as well as companies who guide you for home staging.
Home staging is an art.  The same house where  you have lived in, done away with the leaking pipes  and not given a second glance over the leakages pouring from your walls, the same entrance with dried plants or old rack with stuff to be removed, shoe racks overflowing with old shoes not used since years,  cracked artefacts still holding the same central place in your living room....yes so while you feel you feel this is a lived in home, when you are out to sell this place people do not like this at first glance.
Colorful Cushions Pillows
Feng shui energy here may be a bit dull and stagnant. Moving some  energy that has been lying since years and bringing some simple changes will uplift the place and bring in some fresh positive energy tot eh same existing place.
Feng shui is all  about energy , placement of furniture in the right way, and simple changes brought about in the same existing environment will make this deal faster and get good money for  your property. Follow simple feng shui tips and sell your old house or property faster and at  a better price.
1)  Entrances and doorways , clutter clear. If possible have some fresh plants or  silk flowers here  when the clients are visiting.
2) If possible repaint the house. You can in cheaper quality paint refurbish your house in very less  money. This will also conceal ugly leakages  and stained walls. lean it and then present it.
3)  Not possible to repaint, try shifting furniture too hide off some of the ugly parts  of your house.
4) Be sweet with your buyers, they would not like to deal with arrogant and gloomy people.One persons arrogant talk and there  go your clients  to  another property. Be  prepared to negotiate.  Most of the stuck up property deals are because of this reason.
Fresh Green Plants
5) Your personal problems are not what the clients want to hear. Be as  comfortable and relaxed  as possible.  No one wants to buy from a seller who is in debt or facing financial problems.
Home staging is an art. A simple way to present a product to the buyers in an attractive way. This in no way means that you have to spend a lot of money. Just by keeping the house clean and well maintained and with happy sellers the deal goes off well.
My home staging we do not mean to bluff anybody or fool anyone.  This is not the right way as whatever we do comes  back to us in some way or the other. Usually buyers always repaint and renovate bought houses and it is a fact that they will never stay in as is where is basis. They are as usual    going to shell the walls,  make new furniture and even go as far as change the maindoors and windows.
So  home staging is a temporary step you go about for getting the right price for selling your old house  and that too sooner. Some colorful cushions, some fresh plants and some fresh fragrances, air fresheners, would make the place inviting and client ready to buy.

Feng Shui Tips for empty houses Empty House Feng Shui Understand energy of empty houses

Feng shui for empty houses is another area which is never thought of and discussed. As we all pay lots of attention ont eh feng shui energy of homes, our rooms and offices hardly we  ever pay attention to empty new homes or closed homes which are empty without any furniture. The chi here may be moving or stagnant depending upon the surroundings and even though the house may be an investment property , land or villa it sure has an energy field of its own. Simple feng shui tips can be followed to keep the empty house with positive chi feng shui energy. 
An empty house, a strong symbol of yin, negative dark energy, while the home you stay in has appropriate furnishings , furniture decor, all this is essential for the energy of your home and office.You have it renovated in every few years, add a few touches, color paint, furniture, artefacts, paintings,  to improve the energy of your home thus affecting your personal and financial life chi.
In case of investment properties and closed homes, usually left empty there is strong yin energy inside. As the doors are always kept  closed there is no movement of air and sunlight and thus making the energy accumulated and stagnant. It is advisable to frequently visit the house and open doors and windows to allow fresh energy in at interval of few months at least.
Accumulate dust is one aspect but stagnant energy may harm your life in other ways. While we do not have so much faith in spirits they do dwell in closed unused environments  and this energy has to be kept clean by visiting and cleaning the house regularly. Burn incense at each visit and while you keep the doors and windows open allow fresh air too circulate freely in the whole house. If possible do mop the floors with salt water and purify the place, thus opening the space for positive energy.
Gardens along with villas need to be kept in order and do not allow front gardens to grow taller than the house height.  In case you do not have a  maintenance person for your gardens here let the greenery  grow simple plants that will only cover the floor space and do not require care and trimmings or much watering. Keep the floor of your gardens, front of your villas and bungalows, clean from huge rocks and stones as this will some  how affect your life as  blocks in some aspect, be it career, relationships or wealth.
Feng Shui for Empty Houses and Properties Bungalows and Villas
It is also suggested by feng shui masters that protection of the main door is  very important whether you live or not in a house.  Even if the property is closed and the house is locked  do display symbols and religious symbols on the main door and windows for protection. Religious symbols can be hung made of metal or wood on the main door or handles of the main grill gate even. The swastika symbol, trishul, or christ cross, God idols, Lord Ganesha, Lord Tirupathi, whatever your religious beliefs are.  It is also advisable  to keep  some bird houses that will allow birds to nest keeping the chi fresh and moving here in closed properties. 
While visiting the place, empty houses,  purify the house first and then take possession or begin staying here. Many people also have chanting of hymns or pujas once a year even for closed  empty houses and properties. Finally if you are again going to keep the house closed it is best to burn out all fires of yagnas and incenses as  this is potential risk. Salt  is very important feng shui cure , keep bowls of salt near entrances  and windows from inside house before locking the place again.
Always remember  there   is no replacement to hard sincere effort, for  everything else  there  is feng shui.
