RISMEDIA, Nov. 26, 2008-A newly-released DVD teaches Realtors and homeowners techniques to sell homes according to feng shui teaching, which is the ancient Chinese art of arranging the objects in one’s environment to net positive energy and direct desired outcomes.
“SOLD! The Feng Shui Way” features certified feng shui expert and Realtor Jane Andersen. She takes viewers on a home tour, sharing tips on color, elemental placements and other cost-effective enhancements that are intended to increase the value of the home – and the quality of life for those living in it.
Of the eight feng shui zones in each home, Andersen describes which zones should be enhanced from a real estate perspective, and she offers simple tips on how to do it.
“In the current real estate market, it’s become common for homes to sit on the market much longer than the realtor intends,” said Andersen. “This DVD is an inexpensive tool that agents can use to bring new life to a listing. It helps you get rid of that negative feeling that some clients just can’t shake.”
The 45-minute DVD is broken into nine chapters. In the first chapter, Andersen explains the basic principles of feng shui. Subsequent sections are dedicated to the areas of the home that can aid real estate transactions, according to feng shui teaching: the front yard, entrance, buyer zone, fame zone, wealth zone, kitchen, master bedroom and backyard. In addition to tips on colors and furniture placement, Andersen offers suggestions specific to staging the listing.
“SOLD! The Feng Shui Way” costs $24.95. Each DVD includes a bagua diagram, or energy map, which helps users identify the colors and elements that should be placed in each zone.
