Over my last two decades as a REALTOR®, I’ve had a few people tell me about St. Joseph and that he can help to sell homes.  Legend says that if a statue of the Saint is buried on the property, that it will help to increase the chance of getting the home sold.  I have to say that I never paid much attention to it but that’s about to change.

The other day, I was chatting with a Seller about marketing strategies and tongue-in-cheek, told her about the St. Joseph rumours.  Her response was, “Hey, everything is worth a try!”  Well much to my surprise, she followed through and went out today and bought a St. Joseph Sellers Kit for $11.95 that came complete with a little plastic statue, instructions and a prayer card.  The kit says that St. Joseph is the worker patron saint of carpenters and that his power to intercede on your behalf is truly remarkable.

A search on Google using the keywords, St. Joseph Sell Homes brings up almost two million pages like this one and this one and this one.  It would seem that St. Joseph is a very busy fellow indeed!  The shop keeper where the statue was purchased today said it is one of their top selling items and that they have a hard time keeping it in stock. According to one article I read, St. Joseph medals work too and, condo dwellers can just bury them in a flower pot.  Some say that the key is devotion and daily prayers while others say you don’t even have to be a believer.
