Vastu checklist when buying a home

Looking for a house to buy can be an intimidating process. Potential homeowners want the ideal dwelling for them; they want to locate a property that meets all their criteria and one that brings them good luck.

When searching for a residence to buy, it’s essential to consider Vastu principles in order to make an informed decision.


If you want to purchase a home with an advantageous Vastu layout, it is essential to take into account its positioning, aesthetics, position, the number of rooms it has, its overall size, what has happened in the house previously, and the front door. Paying attention to these factors can help you make the best decision for your home.

Prior to investing in a new residence, it is in your best interest to review a list of considerations to guarantee that your new home generates positive Vastu vibes, thus guaranteeing your contentment while living there.

It is essential to pay close attention when exploring potential homes to purchase – never neglect the Vastu clues that come to you. If you get an instinctive reaction, either positive or negative, do not disregard it!

Google View of property

Once you have pinpointed the residences you are interested in, it is a wise idea to look up the location on Google Earth or Google Maps. This will give you an idea of the orientation of the house and what is located nearby. With Google Earth, you can zoom in to a bird’s-eye view of the area surrounding the property you desire to purchase, or even a street-level view.


It is important to be aware of certain structures, businesses, or buildings that should not be located near your residence.

Here is a checklist of Vastu  taboos that you should be aware of:

  • Medical facilities (especially those that offer urgent care)
  • Graveyards
  • Government waste management facilities such as dumps, sewage treatment plants, or recycling centers
  • Mortuaries
  • Electricity power grids or high-voltage wires
  • Large-scale industries such as petroleum refineries and large factories
  • Places of religious practice – e.g. Shrines, Churches, Mosques

Past history of the home (if you are buying a resale house)

If you happen to purchase a residence that has already been lived in, it is recommended to ask the previous owners for information about the house’s past.

Homes, where serious illness, murders or suicide occurred, will tend to be extremely problematic but if you still choose to inhabit the house, it is strongly suggested to space a clearing method to purify the home before you move in.

Properties that were once owned by families that experienced financial problems are generally not a good investment. Thus, it is not recommended to purchase homes that were put up for sale (auction) by banks, as these houses are thought to bring bad luck when it comes to money.

Pay attention to the following:-


Glance at the trees, vegetation, and blossoms that are growing in the area. They ought to be lively and in good condition. If there are bunches of dead trees, or the landscaping isn’t kept up, this can ruin the Vastu of the whole neighborhood.


When you are out and about, take a moment to observe the birds, insects, or animals in your area. Make sure that they look well and contented. The sound of cheerful tweeting birds suggests that the area has great energy, which brings with it the potential for wealth and health. If you spot butterflies or dragonflies, this is considered to be a sign of luck.


Pay close attention to the climatic conditions; did they take an unexpected alteration while you were looking at the house? If it begins to pour down when no rain was forecasted or you encounter gales of wind all of a sudden, these are spiritual indications warning you to not buy the property.


Determine the orientation of the home you want to purchase so you can decide if the Vastu is beneficial for you and your family.
