Is Really South Facing Houses Are Bad?
Many Vasthu people have an opinion that South facing house never brings luck, these homes are misfortune and unlucky to the residents, but its wrong statement, when we observe the millionaires houses, many people lives in South facing homes only. If residents followed perfect vastu for South facing homes then they will stay in high rich businesses or heavy money flow, open space should be less and any construction should be straight in this direction.
If it is oblique or crooked towards the Agni direction, this affliction can impoverish the occupant. Poverty will automatically come to them. This direction brings more breezes to the house. This will cause good health to the occupants. This breeze can heal diseases also. There is a system of air flow in this direction, that we must observe the site and would construct the house or any other structure, otherwise adverse results may experience to the inhabitants.
If this facing house is good in vastu, then residents who live in this direction (South facing house) generally have firm determination in their goals somehow. They will be ready to follow all the methods without hesitation for their victory. They will readily sacrifice smaller things to reap bigger benefits. The houses in this direction are best suitable for merchants and for ladies establishments.
Elevation towards South or Neighborhood South direction then ladies domination may appear and Money flow will be much satisfactory in their businesses or works. The occupants (South facing house) can earn riches very easily as they are flexible to the Business Transactions.
Having more North then they may be selfish in their dealings. They won’t allow others to dominate them. Hence, they may develop enemies in their life or business.
If this direction is afflicted, this will lead to the arrogance of female in the houses. The property will become women’s property by suppressing the male domination.
The underground structures like Septic Tanks and Water Sumps should not be constructed in this direction. There should not be any pit or well in this direction. These will cause very bad Results to the occupants.
If we properly utilize this direction, more wealth, fame is assured. Someone opinion is that Southside house is not good for achievement, but its totally wrong idea.
The south directional house is very good for money matters, but we have take care all the precautions before selecting the plot and constructing the house as per Vastu Shastra, then victory, money, health, wealth will be the address of that house.
Anyhow contact one good experienced Vastu Consultant before selecting or constructing or buying plot/house. If South side is having mountains or sky scrappers or Apartments then residents may live like Kubera.
Elevation towards South direction is too important. It should not be depressed at any cost. More open space towards South direction causes many difficulties to the residents, it may damages residents health, mental health, wealth mercilessly.
Be careful when you want to buy or construct the South facing houses. Here we tried our level best to incorporate the right information as per our Indian vastu shastra principles and please note that you should not apply all the same Indian rules to other countries like USA, UK, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Dubai, Bahrain etc.

Respected Resident Experience With South Facing Home
Good Evening Dear Suresh Ji, I live in Houston, Texas in the USA. I've been in the USA since 1998 and in Houston since 2001. In 2013, we bought a home and living very very happily. It's a south facing home and at ZERO degrees to the North. Before buying this home, every week I sat in front of Goddess Lakshmi in a mandir and asked for a good home for 3 months. And she blessed me. In the elevation, the highest point is Southwest, the backyard is 35 feet x 35 feet. (North Side is a compound wall & after that, it's a public road. The garage came on the Southwest side. To go to the backyard, the wooden fencing gate is on the Southeast (South). If you see the 2nd floor plan, there are dotted lines. It's on the north side. So all my upstairs load is on the South direction. The staircase is in the middle of the 1st floor where you see UP. And these are my experiences. We started living in this home in Oct 2013. Since then, day by day our Happiness is increasing. First Kid (Boy) went to college in 2019 & the 2nd kid (Girl) went to college in 2021. ( Both are staying in the College Hostel ). They studied well, and there were no Hiccups when they were studying up to 12th Standard. ( And I've raised them very well, with the blessing from God & this Home ). Now, as myself and my wife have been living in the home the Positive vibrations increased a lot because of the Tranquility. Like this, so many experiences and I literally feel like this home is Heaven. Have a blessed evening Sir - Damodar - Texas.
Short Notes on South Direction
According to Hindu Puranas, Yama is the elder brother of "SATURN", who is the lord of lifespan. YAMA is UNBIASED and delivered the merciless judgment and sensible conclusions. He won’t deviate from Dharma or Virtue, he is the incorporated with the principles of almighty Directions. Yama has one face and two hands. He has ‘GADHA’ in his right hand. He keeps the DEATH ROPE (YamaPaasam) in his right hand.
Once Yama decided to take any life then he keeps the DEATH ROPE in his left hand through which he takes the life of every life after the LIFETIME completed.
Yama "Dharma"raj rides on a BUFFALO.
He is also called as ‘HANTHAKA’ which means ‘destructor’ of everything/every life.
Hence our elders saying that this direction should not be extended or should not have more open space, then that may definitely bring misfortunes to the occupants.
He is also known as ‘SAMVARDHAN’ (In some texts he is also called as Dharmasamsthapak) which means that he will treat all the people equally and justify impartially.
While pronouncing/passing his judgment he won't see whether one is big or small, either rich person or poor person. Morals are strictly followed. They are not on papers.

We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking for consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of information. I contacted Mr.Suresh and requested him to help with our house vastu. It has been an incredible delight working with him.. He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions. I am writing this review hoping it will help other people like me who lives in abroad. Please take advise before buying the house. I highly recommend Mr. Suresh as he has great experience with structure of USA properties and also he provides genuine consultation. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh's help in evaluating our house - Padma - Boston - USA
"I contacted Sureshji to consult on our current home. He was spot on in identifying vastu dosha in regards to the problems we were having. He suggested remedies but we are still looking for a new house. Since then I have been in touch with him for finding a right home for us. He is very sincere and truly wishes better lives for everyone. He doesn’t compromise with quality and is always responsive to queries. He recommends solutions as per location as Vastu rules differ for each country. He is greatly contributing to the society with his knowledge of Vastu and dedication towards his work. Keep up the good work Sureshji and wish you success and happiness!" - Megha - Virginia - USA
I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA
