Igloo is right, get a lawyer to handle the estate. You have to do the 2013 tax returns, too.

Your POA ceased once they died. You have no legal ability to sell and all this will come out when the buyer goes to the act of sale and there is a title search done. You need to establish heirship and realistically you need an attorney for this.

Your parents are considered to have died "intestate" or without a will and as such their state laws on death & property are going to be critically important.

In most states when one dies "intestate", all their assets are "escheated" to the state. The state become the owner of the property till heirs are established. For those in this situation, you have to establish lineal heirship. So all possible heirs have the ability to place a stake in the assets of your parents. It usually means having the attorney do some research to establish the validity of who you are and if there are other children and establishing assets and debts. Now you should provide a list of kids to the attorney and that could mean kids from your parents prior marriages. There are posting in the paper required. Look in the classified section of the paper for a few days under the legal notices or summons columns and you will see some posting of how this is done in your state. You have to do this a couple of times so that any heirs have the opportunity to "claim". Anyways after all this is done, the attorney goes and has you declared to be the lineal heir, then you can take that document and either sell the house or maybe get a "muniment of title" done so that you can sell the house. Your state laws are going to determine how this has to be done correctly and legally so that there is no problem with the sale ever. Really truly it is not a Do It Yourself project.
