Your dreams of buying a new home might have been dampened by the outbreak of Coronavirus, but don't let it through you out of course.
Due to the lockdown, developers have started showcasing their properties online via virtual tours. This is a completely new concept for Indians who have always believed the touch and feel technique, especially when making a high ticket purchase. People are skeptical to proceed further and are wary of buying a property. But the fear of losing the dream home, may outweigh the far of COVID-19.
A buyer can consider the builder and whether there are appropriate government approvals and other documents ready, but may nevertheless end up buying a wrong Vastu (place of residence), as there is much excitement on the other factors. While many developers say their buildings are vastu compliant, it is best to have some knowledge about it. Vastushastra is the ancient science that gives insights into spatial structures and guides one in home designing and building larger constructs. The guidelines of Vastushastra have scientific explanation and if adhered to, attract positivity in your place of dwelling/business premise and thereby in your lives.
As per Vastushastra, generally in a building with four flats (more or less) per floor, we would find one apartment 60 percent positive; two would be 35 percent -40 percent positive and the other one about 20 percent. Now at same location with the same cost with the same area and facilities/amenities, a smart buyer under the guidance of a vastushastra expert can get best among the all options available.
Here are a few guiding steps from Dr Raviraj Ahirrao, Co-founder, Vastu Raviraj:
Choose a minimum of three options of your dream home. It is best to get a Vastu expert on board to evaluate on all aspects of a home and then select the best based on their suggestion.
Always prefer main entrance in the North, North - East or East.
Consider having much open space and openings in the North to East region
It's highly essential to have morning sun rays in your vastu but setting sun rays should be avoided.
Kitchen should be in South-East, the master bed room in South-west, children bed room in North-West - these are some of the highly essential factors, that needs to be followed seriously.
One of the most important factors is the abode of the God or your prayer corner which every buyer can or should follow strictly and that should be in the North to East region.
It is highly risky to trust the directions mentioned on floor plan or a brochure of real estate project as we have experienced errors in 98 percent of cases evaluated in the last 21 years.
According to vastushastra every premise should be square or rectangular. In India it is highly difficult to get such premises, but we should avoid premises with cuts.
Now a days developers claim that their projects are Vastushastra compliant. But in most cases these claims are found false. To verify such claims, one should ask for the contact details of the vastu consultant.
If buyers start insisting for house as per vastushastra, then developers will have to respect the customer demand. Fortunately, such projects have started coming up.
It is highly difficult to get a premise that is 100 percent Vastushastra compliant. But by the guidance of a Vastusahstra expert you can apply powerful remedies and make your premise hugely positive by removing the Vastu doshas. These corrective measures are long-lasting, one time investment and at minimal costs.
During these tough times when homes are our only refuge you should look at Vastushastra as an investment and not an expenditure. It's like a preventive vaccine that safeguards us in our finances, health, career, academics, harmony, coordination, relationships along with career, growth, stability. In short Vastushastra influences each and every aspect of our personal, professional & business plus commercial aspects of human life.
