Is Every West Facing Homes Are Bad:
In some cities/towns or areas for example, Bangalore city or Hyderabad city generally some Vaastu consultants never recommending to buy the west side plots, flats, houses, bungalows, shops, hotels, factories, etc, because they cannot explain the major or minor ill-effects of this direction.
Why they are not recommending, what are the facts and reasons behind this thought?
1. West direction house may get chances of having northern-northwest or southern-southwest street focus if it encroaches the road.
2. If there is no sufficient open space towards East then it may affect the residents.
3. Even if there is North direction plot or South direction plot is vacant in such situation also there is a high chance of getting northern-northwest or southern-southwest street focuses to this home.
4. If there is no home opposite to this home, at that time also it may tender pains. Can't get west direction support. (If there is a huge property like big home or apartment at West direction then it will provide good results)
5. Others east direction has very huge building then also there is a chance of affecting this West facing home.
6. Some homes has water storage sumps at in front of the homes, if so it will become either Southwest water sump or west water sump or northwest water sump, generally, this may damage the residents.

After knowing some kind of the above information, many vaasthu experts "never" recommending residents to buy west facing homes. Due to many reasons, most of them never explain all of the above points. This may not be their fault. Please note that Vastu Shastra is a science of nature and it always works well.
Furthermore, considering we were apportioning with West facing homes, here are two relevant chapters that are meriting scrutiny:
Southwest facing house vastu remedies in this link, we can understand how this Southwest affect the residents and what are the remedies.
Northwest Facing House vastu remedies, this NW link explains the features, merits, demerits and remedies too.
If west floor level is elevated, is this good phenomenon:
If West flooring level is higher than the East direction then the family members of that house will be happier with good events in their respective house, no enmity, and diseases will also be reduced. If mountains are at Westside, then residents will be treated as leaders in their region and religion, that enormously impression mounts from that home vastu. The affliction of this direction may lead to ill-fame of the occupants, sorrows, ill-health etc.
Some say east facing house is Good than the West:
Sun starts his journey from East, so the warm shadows are showering at early mornings on east direction, so the east direction property is good than any other direction property. Please note one point or LOGIC here. The west direction home also east place, for that place also sun rays will touch, then the East direction and West direction properties are same almost the same here.
In some west houses sun rays may not touch, at that moment only we have to think on how to correct the house as per vastu principles.
One Example in Bangalore City:
As per one resident request, we visited Bangalore, Karnataka State. The resident selected some properties and he wants to finalize only one property among all other properties in one location.
One of his best friend who acquainted with one vastu consultant shared this information and showed properties and finally, they came to point one property, that property is East facing. When we observed the property and rejected that East facing plot and selected one West facing property. Why ? .. What is the reason behind it. (matter is from subhavaastu.com) The West facing property is having one big apartment at West direction/side. Indeed this is very favorable.
Regarding their selected East facing property, East side land is like a mountain/upper level. West floor elevation bringing good luck but East land elevation bringing bad luck. Surroundings strike an energetic role for the future secured and comfortable life..
Manmade Bad Street Focus:
Caution, while buying this west facing plots, houses, factories, flats etc, residents should approach only expert vastu consultant and buy after their approval (please avoid frivolous scholars in the market.). There are several precautions before buying this west facing properties. For your information, just observe this sample image.
Here two houses are shown with "House 1" and "House 2". Both houses are west facing houses only. Looking for your deep concentration here, please carefully observe both images. "House-1" encroached road i.e., extended to the road and the "House-2" is parallel to the road. Due to this encroachment "House-1" hit by Southwest-south street focus and Northwest-north street focus. This is not at all good. Without having knowledge of some residents encroached roads, this could damage their life. That is why west facing homes should not overstep road.
Now it is very clear to understand the Northern-northwest street focus and Southern-southwest street focus when a property is enchroaches the West side road, both arrows shown with red color for your understanding purpose. With this "House-1" stepinto road the "House-2" will become safe.
Observe this home. East open space is more than double of West open space. The homeowners kept many stones at backyard i.e., at east direction. Please note that we should not hold the stones, a heap of stones, waste materials, stock items, garbage, store materials, keeping such materials makes residents life more troubles, for example, loss of wealth, mental stress, the absence of peace of mind, troubles to the kids, strain, and fame loss etc. The immeasurable idea here is, removing all these unusable material and keep at Southwest corner or upstairs southwest portion areas, or sell them or through them etc.

No doubt in my mind, you are the best Vastu expert, I really appreciate your dedication by building and maintaining a very informative website that is helping thousands of people across the globe. Also, I sensed when I talk to you and when I was dealing with you, you follow honesty and integrity and you have a sincere desire to help others - Kotesware Rao - Dallas - USA
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 a great pleasure 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
Hello Sir, My name is Bharathi. Me and my husband have been reading your articles closely. We really appreciate the effort put by you to share your knowledge about vastu and it’s effects - Bharathi - 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
