Since the mid 1980's countless people have been burying statues of St. Joseph and praying on a daily basis in an effort to sell their homes, and many people assert that this Patron Saint does in fact help. Even those who aren't Catholic are turning to St. Joseph for assistance, and apparently, religious affiliation makes no difference in the outcome of this religious ritual.
You can always hire an agent to sell your home for you, but don't let the agent do all of the work. Use your own personal network to expedite the sale of your home. Social networks provide the fastest way for you to get the word out on your home. Post your pictures and videos to the social media sites you subscribe to with a note to your friends saying, "Help me, sell my house fast" and have friends repost through their networks for even more exposure.
