Vastu tips to consider before buying a flat

A flat in an apartment cannot be 100% Vastu-compliant. However, a few important guidelines should always be followed to attract good fortune and health for the occupants.

Here are some Vastu Shastra tips that one should consider before buying a flat.

  • As per Vastu, directions like north and east have a positive impact, while other directions have a negative impact. Homes facing west or south should be avoided.
  • Vastu tips for buying a new flat suggest that homebuyers should refrain from buying a flat that has large water bodies in the south or west. A river, well, lake or canal should be in the north or east only.
  • An apartment facing a dead-end would bring bad luck for the residents. Avoid apartments adjacent to dilapidated buildings and cemeteries.
  • Avoid buying a flat with balconies in the south and west.
  • The flat/apartment extended in the northeast is good. Avoid all other directions.
  • Avoid choosing flats/apartments with cuts in the southeast and northeast.
  • Irregular, circular and triangular-shaped flats or properties with any of the corners missing should be avoided. The ‘Gaumukhi’ shape, which is narrow at the point of entry and broad at the back is considered good for homes.
  • If buying a resale property, avoid a home where the owner has had a serious accident, severe illness or bankruptcy.

Buying a new home is a huge investment. It should be auspicious for the home owner. Vastu insists that Panchtatva – earth, water, fire, air and sky or space should be balanced in proper proportions for harmony. Vastu Shastra is based upon the eight cardinal and ordinal directions. When the five elements and the eight directions are in their proper places, they support a home owner to achieve success in life.

Water is the main element of the north. The zone brings wealth, growth and career opportunities. Fire is the main element of the south. Vastu suggests that fire should be placed in the southeast, making this the ideal spot for the kitchen stove. Vayu is an important component of nature. According to Vastu, air should enter the house from the northeast.

When buying a flat check the location of each room to ensure that each of the elements of the Panchtatva is present in their respective zones.


Yoni numbers and Vastu

Vastu principles are the same for flats as for independent houses. A flat may be oriented in eight directions (four cardinal directions and four ordinal directions). These directions are specified concerning a central point called the Brahmasthan and Vastu considers all these eight house positions as facing the Brahmasthan. These positions are said to be the birthplace of the house and are represented by the Yoni numbers – 1 to 8. Yoni denotes the position of the house in regards to the Brahmasthan. Ideally, a house should be constructed to match the motion of the earth – east-west and north-south. Yoni numbers for these directions are 1 (eastern house), 3 (southern house), 5 (western house) and 7 (northern house).[A1]
