5 Inch Tall Man Will Help U Sell Your Home, Guaranteed, As Seen On 60 Minutes

I personally do not believe that burying a statue in the yard will sell a house. When I had my house on the market about 15 years ago our realtor buried a statue of St Joseph in our yard and never told me about it until she came to dig it up.  When she rang my bell and told me what she had done, I said, "You did what?"  Needless to say, the realtor knew that I was unhappy with her.

Upside down, in the rear yard, 3' from the rear of the house, facing the house, simply placing on your property, right-side up, in the front yard, exactly 12" deep, facing away from the house, when sold remove, etc., etc. These are some of the rumors on how to use the St. Joseph satue as way to "help sell your home." According to some believers this works. In fact when I purchased my own St. Joseph statue an older man in line said.. "It works!" When I got back to the office 2 other agents laughed and said.. "oh my God, that really works, really!"

Call it superstition, hocus-pocus or even magic, but many people are "swearing" by the practice. Inside the box are instructions, suggested prayers and even an address to mail your success story to share with others. I did notice an interesting disclaimer:

"For this practice to be fully effective, however....sellers must, of course, first do such practical, yet all important chores, as completing all necessary fix-up, propertly staging the home and finally, adjusting the price so as to reflect true market value... then... just watch St. Joseph make it happen!"

See the picture of the man burying the statue?

 

Do you know anyone who has had success with this? What's your opinion? Personally I haven't tried it, but will. I'm going to do a video blog of me burying the statue and document the progress right here on Active Rain. When the seller sees me digging in his backyard I'm just going to let him know that I'm working on some "marketing strategies."

I have heard of this, but never tried it.. I typically pray for my listings to sell & pray God's blessing on my clients, but I've never tried the St. Joseph.  I have heard to works for some!

 Just to clarify, this was a re-blog.  I have not ever buried a statue of anything or anyone in any yard.  I pray like Don and leave the rest to God!
