Luck Of The Irish And Other Ways To Bring Good Luck For Home Sellers!

Want to boost the chances of your house selling quickly? Most Realtors will tell you the best way to do so is price your home appropriately. But it can be fun to go the extra mile and try to boost your luck with superstitions that have been passed down over the years. 

St. Joseph Statue The St. Joe's statue ranks as one of the most pervasive real estate good luck charms. Legend has it that burying a small statue of the patron saint of carpenters upside down in the lawn or garden of the home—while also saying a daily prayer— will help sellers move their home quickly and at a good price. The tactic is popular among Catholics and non-Catholics alike. 

Citrine Stones Other sellers turn to crystals for help with selling. Also known as "The Merchant's Stone," citrine is a golden-hued crystal rumored to attract good fortune to the people around it. Try placing a few citrine stones in a decorative bowl. 

Feng Shui Increase your home's positivity using traditional feng shui techniques. Energy enters through the front door, so start by perking up the front entrance with new paint, a new welcome mat and a few plants. Make sure the main foyer is as open and spacious as possible, as well—buyers will often make a decision the moment they step inside the house. 

Numerology Legend has it that luck in real estate comes from the last non-zero digit of the sale price. And according to Chinese numerology, the number 8 is considered to be lucky (while the number 4 is unlucky!). Therefore, consider listing your home for a price of, say, $178,000 or $308,000—and stay away from anything involving a 4! 

Smudging Some sellers swear by clearing out any negative energy that may be preventing buyers from falling in love with your home. To do so, purchase a smudging stick made of dried sage, found online or at spiritual shops. To complete the smudging ceremony, open a window to allow the negative energy to exit, then light the sage on fire, blow out the flames, and carry the smoking sage into each room in the house. 

Of course, we recommend a marketing strategy and plan organized by the Pearson Group, but a little luck is always welcome. :)
