Yes I have passed it out on occasion with the instructions. They are hard to comeby. 'How to do it' is one of my top posts here on AR.

I do have a good story about St. Joe .... my aunt buried it & he killed the bush a few months later. No mention of that happening in the instructions.

I've not offered one nor have I had a seller request one. I did have one seller who buried her own and the house sold almost immediately afterwards after sitting on the market for a while during the downturn. I figure it can't hurt. Our Realtor Store at our association sells them.

The request came in. St Joseph got dirty.

We cleaned up the statue when the house sold.

The home owner felt they played a critical role in the process. And of course they did.

Not personally but one seller did after the home sat on the market for a couple of months. Several days later it sold. I believe our local AOR has them for sale in their store.

You bet!  St. Joe helped me with a vacant luxury property in a gated community that needed updates and had languished on the market.  It sold shortly thereafter.  Just sayin.
