Texas medicaid recipient has a house with a mortgage of $28K and the house is only valued from $30 to $50. She will never go back to house to live on her own. There are no heirs that can afford to buy the property nor do they want it. Can the house be sold now before she passes away? There will only be minimal left after the mortgage loan is paid to the bank, along with closing costs and repairs which would need to be done to be sold.
