Buying a home and (Asian) Superstitions with Direction/Number ?
We are both Asians (non-Chinese) so I don't really care about #4 or things like that but my wife who is Korean told me we should get house facing the South direction (that's what they do in Korea). She says something to the effect of getting away from the sun, although I don't see any benefits of that here because we do need the sun for the winter!
I was also told by my mom to never buy any house that is directly facing a road. It will lead to breakups in the family and personal problems, things of that nature. I don't know if I should believe that but speaking from a safety aspect, it's a good idea not to buy something like that because of traffic issues (cars coming in and you are backing out for example)
I'm sure my mom would have more things to say but for the moment that's all I can think of.
Is there any other superstitious angles that you guys consider when you look for a house and can you give some explanations behind that ?
