If upon an adjudication and determination, it appears to the court that the estate is insufficient to pay the debts, or whenever it appears to the satisfaction of the court, upon consideration of the claims of creditors and the amount of estate and the value thereof that the estate is insufficient to pay the debts and that the estate is likely to be insolvent, the court may enter judgment to this effect, and direct the personal representative to proceed as if the estate were insolvent, and to make sale of the whole or any part of the estate of his decedent, from time to time, as may appear expedient.
