1. To select a new premises for the business: (retail premises, restaurant, office etc)
• You would want to choose a property that will make an improvement to the business; also encourage good human relationships (between staff, suppliers and customers or clients).
• It is commonly observed that many businesses move from one property to another, the performance in their business change. Sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse.
• There are many unoccupied properties and commonly known as “Ghost Sites”. Why? Unable to find tenants or tenants leave consistently. The last thing you want is to occupy a property that has a constant string of tenants who have failed. (Guildford ) (Farnham). You might fail as well. What makes you think you are so resilient to conquer the forces of nature? Why tempt fate?
• Also, there are properties where businesses are able to do well but they are difficult to find vacancies because tenants do not move out as often. The ability to identify these good properties (and bad ones) is indeed very useful; especially for clients want to do well or have the intention to exceed their business targets, or want to establish themselves. (Knaphill)
2. To buy an existing building for investment.
The ideal building – fully occupied and tenants doing well. Therefore, have the ability to charge a premium in the tenancy agreement. Discounts and rent-free periods are never mentioned. Once there is a reputation for the building, there would be a considerable appreciation in the value of the building.
You do not want to buy a building where there are no tenants or the tenants do not do well.
3. To refurbish or redevelop an existing building.
The ideal scenario is to buy the property at a knock-down price, re-furbish it and make it available at a premium. There must be a reason why the building is available at a knock down price in the first place. Was the building available because of no demand or consistent failure of tenants?
Using feng shui methodology, we can identify why the building failed and rectify the deficiencies. In other words, the re-furbished building will in demand – tenants will flock to it and they will do well. The common practise of just doing a refurbishment or upgrading does not always work,
4. Internal design
