Being back in Hong Kong has made me realise that one of the biggest differences when it comes to buying, leasing or selling a property (apart from the obvious procedures!) is Feng Shui 風水 and how important it is to clients here.
I was with some clients today who are looking at buying a property. I know that they are thinking of renovating the property extensively - did they bring an interior designer with them - NO! They brought their Feng Shui Master with them......
So what is Feng Shui 風水? It literally translates as 'wind-water' and is an ancient Chinese system of aesthetics believed to use the laws of both Earth (the geography) and Heaven (the astronomy) to help improve ones life by receiving positive qi.
I am most definitely not an expert but can put you in touch with one!
If you want to know more or even fancy a chat about property here in Hong Kong or in the US then get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
