Whenever a court shall decree the sale of real estate, if it
appear to the court that such real estate is of the value of five
hundred dollars or more, it shall prescribe in the decree that such
sale shall be advertised in a newspaper by the commissioner or

as a Class III legal advertisement in compliance with the
provisions of article three, chapter fifty-nine of this code, and
the publication area for such publication shall be the county where
the real estate to be sold is situate. In the advertisement the

the value may be less than five hundred dollars.
