St Joseph Statues Used To Sell Homes In Africa
(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 18, 2015 ) Dublin, Ireland -- New research shows that the Saint Joseph statue is used in Africa to sell houses. Data released today shows that the small garden statuette is used in parts of Africa to sell houses and properties. This is the first time that any study of the use of the statue has ever been conducted on the African continent.
'While it is known that the Saint Joseph statue is popular for selling houses in Europe and North America, little is known about the use of the statue in Africa. This new study shows that the statue is used to help sell homes in select regions in Africa and seems to be part of the legacy of the missionaries who were actively involved in teaching and preaching in the continent' commented one of the lead researchers earlier to day.
'The research was carried out by interviewing individuals and real estate agents in Africa to see if they had heard of or used the statue. Paul Musoga is a father of five from East Africa. He learned of the tradition from Irish priests who taught in the local school. He made his own statue out of local wood and buried it upside down in the plot of land that he wanted to sell. The land sold very quickly and without all the usual hassles encountered when trying to sell land in a resource limited country'
'However it seems that little is yet known about the tradition in urban areas of South Africa. Real estates agents from South Africa denied any previous knowledge of the House selling statue tradition but were eager to learn more to try to boost house sales'
This research is part of an ongoing project to try to understand more about the Saint Joseph house selling statue practice.
