Arond 93 per cent of home buyers look for vastu compliant homes, reveals a study by Housing.com. 4 out of every 5 prospective home buyers would like to know the Vastu of the property, even before physically checking the property.

Vastu compliance seems most prominent in the South zone (both Chennai & Bangalore) & seems less in the North, followed by East & least in the West zone. The consideration set for Vastu are ‘Direction’ (33 per cent), ‘Set up and Arrangement’ (30 per cent), ‘Positive Impact’ (20 per cent) and ‘Ventilation/Flow of Energy’ (17 per cent).

The study tries to decipher Vastu from the lens of middlemen/influencers since they are best suited to provide a realistic feedback on market needs. It included a mix of personal interviews and structured questionnaires conducted with a sample size of 328 individuals including brokers, architects and builders across eight cities, namely Mumbai, Delhi, Jaipur, Kolkata, Patna, Ahmedabad, Chennai and Bangalore.

Amongst the regions, South has the highest Vastu compliancy requests followed by North, East and West (least). In South, Chennai and Bangalore showcases considerable faith in Vastu, with a majority willing to even take corrective measures if the house is not Vastu compliant. Only 9% showcase little or no interest in Vastu

56 per cent of the consumers believe that the entrance to the house is the most important factor in determining its Vastu compliancy. Consumers showcase willingness to compromise on design in order to get a Vastu compliant house; 87 per cent readily agree to forego the size of the house for Vastu

Since Vastu is more of a belief, consumers tend to adopt it without question. The adherence to Vastu is seen high among consumers who are more risk prone such as business men and middle aged consumers. Businessmen exhibit higher Vastu compliance (over 65 per cent) as compared to professionals (30 per cent). Workers and small-time traders showcase the least dependency on Vastu for home buying decisions.
