There are superstitions EVERYWHERE. Lucky numbers, unlucky numbers, salt over your shoulder, black cats…there are so many superstitions, I am sure I don’t even know most of them. I am not one to believe in most superstitions, but at the same time, I don’t purposefully go around breaking mirrors and running under ladders, either! (Hey, better safe than sorry, right!?) Believe it or not, there are also many superstitions in Real Estate! Some Real Estate superstitions are localized and some are more wide-spread.
These are the Top 7 Real Estate Superstitions for East Texas:
1. St. Joseph Statue – This is probably the most well known real estate superstition. St. Joseph is the patron saint of Real Estate and is used by Catholics and non-Catholics, alike. Legend has it that if you bury the St. Joseph statue (upside down) in your yard near the “for sale” sign, your house will sell faster. I have never tried this myself, but one of my clients just got one, so I will report back on the progress. You can pick one up on amazon…and if you want more testimonials, read these reviews…480+ reviews at the time of this article, and most of the raving about the statue working. Hmm, definitely food for thought (and certainly cheaper than a remodel haha!)
