You've heard stories about people burying the statue of St. Joseph after months of no activity on a newly listed home. This ritual then immediatly sold their home. You may not personally know of anyone to have done this, but your curiousity has prompted you to Google search this topic or even hit Snopes to find out for yourself.
Does it work? Does it matter where or which way you bury the statue? What do you do when your house sells?
What I have learned about the St. Joseph Statue:
The statue is buried upside down in the front yard with the feet pointing to heaven. It may face towards the home (or towards the street if you want your neighbor's home to sell!) The location of the statue can vary: by the "For Sale" sign, in a flower pot (popular for condo owners), etc.. As long as you can find it once the home has sold. After the home has sold, the statue should be removed from the ground and given a place of honor in your new home.
I have yet to hear about other techniques or rituals that buyers or sellers use. What about you?
