It’s Not All About Curb Appeal

Most people looking for a house check out the number of rooms, the layout, the condition, the location location location, and whether the house number is good feng shui. Okay, “most” may be overstating the case, but in Hayward, CA it’s causing a problem. County house numbers are assigned according to how far they are from downtown Oakland, so many people’s addresses in Hayward have 5 digits which, along with living at the end of a cul-de-sac and having a door that opens onto a staircase, is bad feng shui. And we all know how painful that can be. City Council is offering waivers to developers who want short numbers, there’s been a run on mirrors, red ribbons and crystals to hang in blighted houses, and you can be grateful you don’t own the last house on the block and live at 66,666 Main Street.
