Numerology & what it means for your house

Have you ever wondered if your house number means anything?

If you’re a superstitious type you may be interested to know.

Don’t care for superstitions? Well if you’re an investor – then knowing the 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 3, then your property could be worth more to the right buyer.

Working out your ‘number’

Brisbane psychic, numerologist and palm reader Sarah Yip says that 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


Pros: Promotes independence and great for people looking for a fresh start.

Cons: “You will be constantly busy. I often see number 1 houses up for rent as not everyone can cope with their fast pace, or in some cases, exposed location.”


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. Hoarding is favoured, Yip says.


Pros: Ideal for gatherings, raising children and open communication. 3 is a lucky number.

Cons: Not the cleanest house, or the best for discipline. Gossip can backfire in a 3 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, Yip says.

Cons: “I see these houses up for rent more than any other house number – they are better for extroverts.”

number 5


Pros: Often beautiful, excellent for families, pets and home businesses. A nest.

Cons: You might worry about appearances living here. Gardens require more upkeep.

number 6


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,” Yip says.

Cons: “7 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; “Brings power to the owner.”

Cons: “You can’t cut corners in an 8 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, Yip 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,” Yip advises.

number 9
