Welcome to wonderful world of the Missouri Association of Realtors.
As my Dad use to say, “If it’s stupid, but it works, it ain’t stupid.”
That’s not new. My neighbor used it to help sell his house 6 years ago. Had a contract within a week of burying the statue. And there is indeed a SOP for proper burial method. He has to be buried head down facing the house. After you sell, you have to dig him up and put him in a place of honor in your new house.
If I had a house for sale, I would try it, Cant hurt.
I think I would take a different approach.
After so many weeks on the market without a bite, I think I’d bury my agent.
