Bury a statue of ST Joseph to help your house sale?

A few questions arise from this practice:

Does Joe get a commission on each house sold?

Does he also work AGAINST forclosures?

Can he be re-cycled after a successful sale or is each statue a one time deal (thereby increasing statue sales)?

Does the statue need to be blessed first by a bishop or local priest before his magic powers kick in?

And, what if the house doesn’t sell or the owner gets less than asking price? Is joe debunked?

Inquiring minds want to know...

I have come out of a background that is "Catholic" though not Roman.

This sounds to me like a folk superstition very typical of Catholics, but most likely not an official doctrine.

I live in Cajun country in South Louisiana. This is very well known here. I have had numerous Catholic friends do this and recommend me to do this when the house was for sale (and yes, was advised to bury it upside down). I would just say huh...and go on with my day.
