Have you ever wondered if your house number means anything or if you have one of those lucky house numbers that buyers go nuts over?
If you’re a superstitious type – or believe the meaning of your house number and your address can, in fact, change the energy within your home – then you may be interested to know.
Don’t care for superstitions? If you’re an investor, knowing the lucky house numbers certain buyers love and hate could help you target the right market when you rent your property.
Selling up? If you’re lucky number three, then your property could be worth more to the right buyer.
Working out your ‘number’
Brisbane psychic, numerologist and palm reader Sarah Yip says to work out the numerological number of your house, add its numbers until you arrive at a single digit.
For example, if your house number is 66, then its numerological number is 3 (6+6=12; 1+2=3). If you live at 34/7 add 3+4+7=14; 1+4=5.
What your house number means
House number meanings are so varied and intriguing; having just a little insight into them could open you up to a whole new way of thinking. Number 19, for example, is said to be good for new beginnings, while number one is known for its leadership qualities.
Some sources say it’s important to avoid interpreting the meaning of your house number directly as this could impact your decisions. Meanwhile, other people will purely select their homes based on numerology and whether their address boasts a lucky house number.
Here, Sarah reveals the numerological meanings behind numbers one to nine.
Pros: Promotes independence and great for people looking for a fresh start.
Cons: “You will be constantly busy. I often see number one houses up for rent as not everyone can cope with their fast pace, or in some cases, exposed location,” Sarah says.
Pros: “Encourages intimacy, creativity and patience. Live here if you want peace and quiet.”
Cons: You’ll become too passive if you’re shy or indecisive, Sarah says.
Pros: Ideal for gatherings, raising children and open communication. Three is a lucky number.
Cons: Not the cleanest house, or the best for discipline. Gossip can backfire in a number three house.
Pros: Somewhere you can feel safe and secure; it encourages commitment.
Cons: Can make you more inflexible and conservative.
Pros: Amazing for travellers, night owls, gypsies and forever-young types, Sarah says.
Cons: “I see these houses up for rent more than any other house number – they are better for extroverts.”
Pros: Often beautiful, excellent for families, pets and home businesses. A nest.
Cons: You might worry about appearances living here. Gardens require more upkeep.
Pros: Excellent for nature-lovers and those who need personal space. “These houses are often set back from the road or have plenty of tree cover,” Sarah says.
Cons: “Seven is the hermit energy, so don’t live here if you hate being single.”
Pros: This is the money number in China and associated with good returns over the long-term.
Cons: “You can’t cut corners in a number eight house. It is shaped like an infinity symbol showing what goes around comes around.” You must look after this house and not scrimp on insurance, Sarah warns.
Pros: Everyone feels welcome making these homes great for international residents and/or mixed families.
Cons: Guests get so cosy that they leave things behind. “You’ll need to have regular garage sales,” Sarah advises.
