Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of placement of things to enhance the flow of "vital life energy" known as Qi. Practitioners believe that rooms, buildings and all environments can be arranged and ordered in a way that maximizes the flow of Qi resulting in an improvement in life quality.

There is also a school of thought that says rearranging your home according to Feng Shui principals will cause it to sell faster. Staging is absolutely mandatory but I don't buy into Feng Shui. Unless you are targeting Chinese buyers.

I do subscribe to a spotlessly clean house, good traffic flow, fresh paint, crisp landscaping with new mulch, flowers, bright lights, soft music, no clutter, no pet smells, curb appeal, no dead insects on the window sill, no torn screens, easy access, no sellers or their agents on the property when showing, no trashed teen rooms, no stuffed animal heads on the wall, no personal pictures on the wall (unless you have one with you shaking hands with the President), very few books on the shelf, no cooking smells.... I think you get the drift. Maybe some of these things coincide with Feng Shui and that's good. But I think you will have better success selling your house if you rearrange your furniture and not your energy flow.

Jupiter homes for sale can all benefit from the above list of items to inhance saleability.  I'm not buying into the Feng Shui idea, but I do buy into doing the things that have been shown to sell houses.  Another idea floating around is that of burying a certain statue in your yard....upside down no less.  And recently, I know of a couple who, after their home was on the market for 2 years, buried the statue and sold their home.  Now they are believers.  You can't prove cause and effect by me though.
