South-west facing house


Hi folks,

We are looking to buy a house, but the main door is south-west facing. Looking online, seem to suggest that it is a bad idea to buy a house that is south-west facing. Any advice on what we should do?

Surprised to see main door is south west cos usually the main 4 directions only will be available for door. Only corners of the house will be the other cross 4 directions like SW, NE, SE, NW.

Earlier vasthu is seen only for temples. But in 90s after globalisation when china vasthu occupied, slowly people adapt to vasthu. Also people prefer north or east facing but again it cannot be generalised and it will be suitable for some places. Say like in Chennai if it is applicable north and east facing it may not be applicable to Coimbatore and etc.,. But people are selecting with general concept of east or north facing.


Thanks for the reply. It is mostly because the street is lining the houses to face southwest, and that forces the door to be facing the street, and hence it is also facing south west.

Then it is very nice to keep in the wall opposite the door with either puja room or keep god's photos as that will be north east which if ideal direction to keep

My house's front door is towards South by South West. We have lived in this house for 32 years. Raised a happy family and financially successful. I do not believe in superstitions.
But I live in the USA.

generally east and north are good ,,,,,,west is okay,,,,south is avoidable.....but some ppl south is good

according to individual rasi.....in many constructed houses will not able to full fill the directions...

only we build our own house according to our choice may be possible....in our location

in USA...if we want buy house east /north face....sometimes we have to extra premiums...
