How many of you have heard of him?Does anyone know who he actually is?
Why do some people bury his statue upside down in their backyard when selling their homes?
Saint Joseph statues have been one of the most appreciated traditions and folklores among Catholics since short after the 1500th century, when nuns first began to bury Saint Joseph medals in the ground.
Today its a common way to try to make your sale go faster and smoother.
They even sell kits!
Many years ago,my mothers house was on the market exactly one year with very few showings,when she decided to bury this little statue in the ground and 7 days later she was under contract!
Fast forward to me and my beach house that I was trying to sell...with little luck at the time.My mother said,lets go bury St Joseph and see if he can help...sure enough within the week,I get a call from a friend who says....I have someone who really wants your house...sure enough...it went under contract immediately!
One of my investment properties,I was trying to sell and nothing was happening except for vandals visiting the property....well,I decided to give St Joseph a shot again and sure enough I got a cash offer for more than I was hoping for and close in 5 days!
Whether it is folklore or not..I believe!
Do you believe?
