You may remember our post from a few months ago about burying a St. Joseph statue in your yard in order to sell your house. Well, scoff if you will...
...but our friends didn't follow our advice. Their house -- a beautiful one, offered at a reasonable price (ok, reasonable for their desirable Bay Area neighborhood) -- sat there for months. They finally got so frustrated that they buried a St. Joseph statue in the yard. And within a couple of weeks, voila, the house sold.
To which we say, believe it or don't, but it can't hurt, so why not? (Besides, in this case, we're talking about a million dollar home. Spending 10 or 12 bucks really wasn't a big deal to them. Continuing to wait for it to sell was.)
