If from the evidence it appears that the land upon which the execution has been levied
cannot be divided, the court shall, unless a sale has already been held, make an order
directing the sale of the land under the execution; but at such sale no bid must
be received unless it exceeds the amount of the homestead exemption. Where a sale has already been held, the proceeds of sale to an amount equaling the
homestead exemption shall be set off to the judgment debtor as exempt, and the balance
distributed as provided by order of the court.
