Can St. Joseph Help You Sell Your Home?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Bend Premier Real Estate 200009031

St Josephs StatueOne of the hot selling items on Amazon.com is the St. Joseph Home Seller Statue Kit.  According to tradition that sellers say goes back thousands of years, burying the statue in the yard of your home and saying a prayer to St. Joseph will always bring a quick offer on your home for sale.  But it is important that you bury the statue in the right spot, lest you accidently help your neighbor sell their home quickly, and upside down so St. Joseph will work “extra hard to get out of the ground, and into a safe comfortable home.”  Reviews on Amazon.com where this kit is often sold include comments such as “I put this in my front yard and the next day we had an offer on our house,” and “My house sold in 2 1/2 hours and had 3 other offers, sight unseen the same night. Enough said!!!!” But, of course, they were also many reviews with the sentiment similar to this seller - “Bought this hoping our house would sell quickly because we were that desperate to sell...6 months later house is still on the market.”  Will St. Joseph, the patron saint of home and family, help sell your home quickly? Who are we to say? But if you are trying to get the most money in the shortest amount of time in selling your Bend Oregon home, we recommend contacting one of our Premier Brokers who will put our proven marketing methods to work for you.

Hello Lynnea Miller, Funny I use St, Joseph and sometimes when I go back on the day of closing to get him, he is gone.  Can never figure that out.

Lynnea,

Throwing rice around the perimeter of the house is another one I have heard of.  Now rice is outlawed at weddings and I am sure for the perimenter, because it kills birds.  LOL A

Lynnea it might help if it's priced right and in  tip top condition.  I've had sellers who swear by using St Joseph and it worked for them....PLUS they were well prepared for market!

Lynnea Miller ,  I must admit that I have used St. Joseph from time to time and just recently the house sold in less than a week. I've been using it for probably seven years now but not all the time ....

 Now that I come to think of it I probably should go to Amazon and order another one. I  used to have three of them and I'm down to my last one Lynnea Miller

There are certainly plenty of stories about the success of using St. Joseph. Not sure he will work if the home is outlandishly priced! I've only had 1 client ask about doing this - we did, and it worked.

I heard this only works if you are baptized, which I was, LOL. I know people who use it. Only I think they buried him upside down in their back yard. We have a Catholic store right down the street from my house in Land Park, and I imagine St. Joseph statues sold like hotcakes during the market crash. If I owned that store, I would have plastered house-selling fliers all over the windows and raised the price of those things.

I knew of an agent she always did it and she always sold her listings.... I never did it... so it is a personal choice. If you think it works it will work, if you think it does not work it will not work....Endre

Does Saint Joseph's statues work for Jewish and Muslim customers?

There are many people that believe St. Joseph helps people to sell their home.

Good luck and success.
