Many people firmly believe that proper use of a St. Joseph statue can help sell your house. The problem is most people don’t know how to use St. Joseph to help sell your house. There are many great success stories of people calling on St. Joseph in this manner. If you have your home priced correctly, have properly prepared your house for sale and are still having trouble selling your home. Or, if you would just like to have all the help you can get in your effort to sell, perhaps you should consider giving it a try.
Saint Joseph, the husband to Virgin Mary and the foster father of Jesus Christ, is the patron saint of handcraft and home protection, according to some Christian beliefs. He’s also considered as the “home selling agent”. But how exactly do you use St. Joseph to help sell your house? Burying a Saint Joseph statue upside down on the property you are trying to sell is believed to facilitate and hasten the sale and even attract the perfect buyer. Joseph was made a Patron Saint because he taught Jesus Christ the craftsman’s trade and ensured that the Son of Man was always well housed. For this reason, he is believed to be of great help to people looking for the ideal home and in connecting sellers to the perfect buyers in no time at all. Well, it may sound corny, peculiar or even irrational, but many are the sellers who have faced difficulties when selling their property and swear being successful after simply burying a Saint Joseph statue on the property they are trying to sell.
If you would like to order your own St. Joseph statue, you may order it here. This is the one that we use and have given to many clients with successful results. The one in that link even contains an introduction explaining the “Way of St. Joseph” and, most importantly, the prayer card.
However, burying the St. Joseph statue alone, sitting back and waiting won’t do; it is highly recommended that you also say the St. Joseph Prayer and novena to Sell a House for best results.
Make sure that you bury your St. Joseph statue in the right spot. Failure to bury the statue in the right spot may end up helping unaware neighbors across the street sell their home before yours. Where you put the Saint Joseph statue can really make a difference in how quickly your home sells. Okay then, what is the right spot to bury that statue of St. Joseph for quicker results in your property sale? Some say the statue needs to be buried beside the for sale sign, others say 3 feet away from the sign and still some others say immediately in front of the house (first place of earth). There are many theories of course, but the one thing that they all tend to agree upon is burying the statue upside down. Another theory is which way St. Joseph needs to be facing. Some say St. Joseph needs to face the street to attract buyers but others insist that he must face the house with his arms also facing the house. There are reports that say if he is facing away from the house, then whatever house he is facing tends to sell quickly. Probably best to be safe than sorry on that one and face him towards the house.
The Saint Joseph Prayer to Sell a House:
O, Saint Joseph, you who taught our Lord the carpenter’s trade, and saw to it that he was always properly housed, hear my earnest plea. I want you to help me now as you helped your foster-child Jesus, and as you have helped many others in the matter of housing. I wish to sell this [house/property] quickly, easily, and profitably and I implore you to grant my wish by bringing me a good buyer, one who is eager, compliant, and honest, and by letting nothing impede the rapid conclusion of the sale.
Dear Saint Joseph, I know you would do this for me out of the goodness of your heart and in your own good time, but my need is very great now and so I must make you hurry on my behalf.
Saint Joseph, I am going to place you in a difficult position with your head in darkness and you will suffer as our Lord suffered, until this [house/property] is sold. Then, Saint Joseph, i swear before the cross and God Almighty, that i will redeem you and you will receive my gratitude and a place of honor in my home.
After burying the statue and saying the above prayer, also consider following it up for nine days with the St. Joseph Novena. According to tradition, a novena can be an effective means to gaining a favorable intercession on your behalf.
Hooray! Now Saint Joseph will surely help you get your home sold fast.
Believer or not, the mere thought of a statue helping in the sale of a house is very profound, but does it really work? Well, that’s debatable. Nay sayers may call it legend, but do not make the mistake of voicing that notion aloud before the many desperate sellers who buried the saint and came out with some pretty amazing results. It doesn’t matter which religious denomination you align with; whether Protestant, Catholic or Jewish, the fact of the matter is that if you pray to St. Joseph, he will help you find the right buyer to your house or even find you your dream house.
It is very important that you retrieve St. Joseph from the ground and give him a place of honor in your next home or leave him in the home to bless the new family that is moving in. Do not leave him in the ground at the old house. This would be considered rude, disrespectful and according to tradition could cause your old home to continue to get sold over and over again.
