Discover what the best house numbers are, according to house number numerology.
When you’re in the market for a new home or investment property, there are plenty of boxes to tick – large kitchen, off-street parking, close to amenities…. the list goes on. But one aspect you might not have considered is house number numerology.
The power of a single digit
For numerologists, a property’s number can say a lot about the place and whether it will bring good fortune – or misadventure – to the occupants.
To work out the house number numerology of your home, simply add up all the figures in the street number of your house until you arrive at a single digit.
For instance, 314 Brown street would have a numerology number of 8 (3+1+4). If the property was 14/314 Smith Road, its number would be 4 (1+4+3+1+4 = 13; 1+3 =4).
Best house numbers
Exactly what the best house numbers are can vary across cultures. In Chinese culture for instance, even numbers are regarded as luckier than odd numbers. The number 8 can be especially auspicious as this is the number for good fortune and prosperity. The number 9 is also keenly sought after as this sounds like the word for long life. The number 2 points to a happy marriage, and number 6 is said to attract positive energies to ensure trouble-free living.
Other house number meanings
If you’re hoping to enjoy a fresh start, house number numerology suggests you look for properties with the numerology number 1; the number 3 encourages creativity; and number 5 could be worth looking for if you’re a free spirit. The number 7 suggests your home will be a place of contemplation and meditation.
The number 4 on the other hand is regarded as unlucky. In the Cantonese language 4 sounds like the word for death.
Unlucky for some
While many house number numerology meanings are generally positive, in Chinese culture the number 4 is regarded as unlucky. In the Cantonese language 4 sounds like the word for death.
If you’re not into house number numerology this can all sound a bit hocus pocus. But when you think about it, certain numbers have significance in many cultures – we may subconsciously raise an eyebrow, for instance, when someone mentions they live at number 13.
Should house number numerology play a role in selecting a property?
House number numerology could possibly have an impact on your home’s resale value. Depending on the demographics of people living in your area it could give your home multicultural appeal.
But ultimately, the number you should really focus on is the property’s price. If this fits your budget and the property ticks all your other boxes, your home could turn out to be a magic place to live. Even if it is number 4.
