It is also best to avoid plots close to schools, colleges and temples.

Do not but plots that are round, triangle ,hexagon, octagon and polygon shaped. You can also check out with your vastu consultant regarding “Gomukhi plots” which are narrow in the front and wider at the backs as they are lucky. Avoid singhmukhi plots for building homes. These are wide in the front and narrower at the back.
Color of the Soil:
Government employees. admin executives, those who are in armed forces or legal services should opt for plots with red soil. Yellow or green soil is good for those involved in commercial activities like bankers, businessmen, shareholders etc. Those in professions like doctors, engineers teachers, performing arts etc should opt for plots with white soil.

The roads around the plot is also of importance. Road on the east brings prosperity and wealth that on the west gives average results. At the north it is good for women and on south it is found to be good from business point of view. Roads on both north and east is superb and that on east and south or west and north or east and west is good. North and south or south and west gives average results.
