   appraiser  or  a  State  certified  residential real estate appraiser.      
   Provides that the sale of the property by the officer shall be subject      
   to any existing encumbrances.  Provides that the officer shall mail by      
   certified mail or cause to be mailed by certified mail to the judgment      
   debtor a notice indicating that the property will be sold  unless  the      
   judgment  is  satisfied.  The  notice  shall  contain  the date of the      
   scheduled sale, which shall be no less than 60 days after the date  of      
   the notice. Effective immediately.
