I bought St. Joseph online! Just writing that statement seems very weird, but I'm hoping it works! Just google St. Joseph; he came in a few days.

Did you buy the pre-blessed on line version?

We decided today to take the house off the market and keep it as a rental. We have a beautiful new house waiting for us in TV and we are just going to finish packing up and leave! It might have been wiser to wait to buy there until after we sold here, but what the heck, we saw a house we loved and bit the bullet. We have a beautiful 5 bedroom house on 5 acres and not a nibble and we priced it on the lower end of the scale. Our agent said it could take over a year to sell...the market here is almost non exsistent. There is no way we can finish packing up and keep it in pristine showable condition at the same time. It looks like a bomb exploded...boxes and packing material in every room.
Never realized how much stuff we had that we never used and did not need. The same story as everyone has!

My showing on Wednesday yielded the comment, "Client liked the unit but it was a wee bit small but he may come back for another look".

I will call real estate agent today to see if it possible to get a clarification.

Any members thoughts on what this means would be appreciated.

Default Hello? Is anyone out there???

We've had our house on the market for five weeks and have had no showings. Zero. No calls according to the realtor. We've had lots of gawkers that drive past the house slowly and look, but no one had asked to see the inside.

Ours is above the average sale price and those are hard sells in the local market.

Someday someone will see it and say "That's IT. That's the house I want!" Until then, we dream of what will be and enjoy the Maine summer!

I am so happy for you. My hub and I really prayed everyday to St.Joseph. Not only for us but for the folks who would buy our home.

To everyone who posted I am sending positive happy thoughts your way. For us we had it priced to sell, staged every room even linen closet, put fresh flowers out set the dining room table. and it was spotless. I love to label and organize and the couple who bought our home loved the labeling I did.

Keep a postive attitude and keep dreaming your dream will come true. Hugs

Default When did you bury your St Joseph's statue - before or after you listed?

I am wondering if I should "plant" my St Joseph's statue now or wait until I list it with a RE broker. We have had some interest while holding yard sales to get rid of the "treasure" we have accumulated over the last 33 years. We have only lived in this house 13.5 years, but we dragged everything with us on the last move, because it was a short distance from the old house.

We are holding our last round of yard sales over this coming (Memorial Day) weekend and then anything we can't unload and our son and DIL don't want is either going to Goodwill or the trash. I parted with all my wine-making stuff, but at least got what I wanted, a mere fraction of what I originally paid. I know that I can't make wine in the garage and our 2 brm villa just does not have the space for the stuff! I enjoyed making my own wine, but want to move to TV more! Most of the cake decorating stuff is either going to my DIL or one of her friends. I did keep a few (very few) pans. But I kept ALL of my sewing, cross-stitch and knitting stuff.

I haven't seen Jim part with much of his stuff, but he still says "I" have too much stuff!

There is no need to wait until you have the house listed. Just make sure it's upside down and facing your house... unless you were not selling and you don't like your neighbor! It's been said that if you don't like your neighbor that you should bury the statue facing that neighbor's house and they'll wind up selling their house.

Here's an interest article on the subject: http://www.st-josephstatue.com/st_joseph.htm

BTW, St. Joseph is my patron saint and I'll put in a good word for all of you hopefulls!
