Lets Feng Shui this economy!

It seems logical that the word function derives from Feng Shui.  This current business of "feng shui-ing" your villa in order to sell seems as useful as burying Joseph upside down in the front yard.  In Webster's dictionary, one definition of functional is "designed or developed chiefly from the point of view of use."  In other cultures they may have feng shui-ists.  Here in the US we use architects to design functional real estate.  In economics we have - well we have dis-functional opinions and equations that all use differing variables to try and explain the same im-measureable thing.

What makes something functional?  Maybe it is it's feng shui-ness; it's ability to align all the correct forces into a positive aura while gently motivating the negative into another plane.  (Cosmic, dude.)

So what if all real estate professionals started feng shui-ing real estate news and listings and blogs and such?  Would it make a positive difference?  It couldn't hurt.

So go ahead, feng shui something today in the name of the real estate market and lets get this economy feng shui-ed!
