Patron saint of foreclosures?

Poor St. Joseph.  He can’t catch a break these days.

Folks are buying St. Joseph (husband of Mary) figurines and burying them, upside-down, near the For Sale sign in hopes of bringing a quicker sale.

Prayer sure doesn’t hurt but this is a bit off the deep end.  I had heard about this practice several months ago as a woman in our home group knew someone who did this.  Heck, kits are available for sale just for this purpose!

About the only thing that will help sell a house in this kind of a down market is lowering the price and taking a loss, if needed, or holding out for a recovery.
