In the real estate industry, creating a competitive edge is essential to buying and selling in a thriving market. To keep your competitive edge strong the power of positive thinking can help you build confidence and intention. Confidence and intention allows you to manifest the best selling price possible or the best buying price. Intention and positive thinking helps resonate the energies you want to attract symbolically, often through letters or numbers. It is like picking a lucky number; the number is lucky because you invest your personal power in it. As a real estate agent, I have had extensive experience buying and selling property. I have found there is a numerical trick that can be used to increase your positive thinking and your power of manifestation. It is a simple way to build confidence and a strong belief in your self, which leads to completing a successful real estate transaction.

Unlock Your Potential
The real estate game of lucky numbers I have created and tested is loosely based and the ancient practice of numerology. For potential homebuyers attempting to make the perfect offer on a new property you must take the number of the property address and add it until it becomes a single digit. For example: 123 Main Street becomes 1 + 2 + 3, which equals 6. The symbolic number of the home you want to purchase is 6. Once you know the price range of the home you make an offer that also resonates to the symbolic number of 6. For example: $123,000 or $330,000 or even $510,000. Each of these numbers, when adding all the digits together, resonates to the single digit 6. This same method can be used for sellers. When you have completed a CMA on the home you intend to sell and know the appraised price for the property you take the symbolic number of the home address and resonate it with the price you put it on the market for. For example: 57 Broadway Ave. becomes 5 + 7, which equals 12. You then add 1 + 2 and the symbolic number of the home is 3. Once you know the value of the home you choose a selling price that harmonizes with the number 3. For example: $210,000 or $750,000.

Wisdom From The Past
This numerical trick may seem farfetched but the study of the symbolic meaning of numbers has existed for thousands of years. The earliest known study of numerology is mentioned in the Jewish Kabbalah. Each single digit, beginning with 1 and ending with 9, has a symbolic vibration. Using these numeric symbols as focal points can help you achieve your real estate goals. Below I have provided some brief interpretations of the meaning of numbers. When purchasing or selling your property use your property's natural "lucky number" to maximize the potential of the market.

  • 1 is the number of individuality and initiating action.
  • 2 is the number of cooperation and adaptability.
  • 3 is the number of communication and joy.
  • 4 is the number of home and stability.
  • 5 is the number of visionary expansion.
  • 6 is the number of responsibility and nurturing.
  • 7 is the number analysis, awareness and understanding.
  • 8 is the number of power and status.
  • 9 is the number of creativity and humanitarianism.

The numbers 11 and 22 are also significant. 11 is associated with spirituality and intuition. 22 is the symbolic number of a born leader or "Master Builder".

Create Your Own Reality
Lucky charms and numbers may seem like fortune telling. In actuality these tricks are simply tools the mind uses to concentrate our will; it is basic psychology! When we concentrate our will on positive ideas and experiences we are able to create these things in our reality. If you believe you can make a successful home investment, you will! If you have confidence in your ability to get the best price for your property, you will!
