Notice must be given, in accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 2002, once a week for four consecutive weeks prior to the sale in one newspaper regularly issued and of general circulation in the county and judicial district wherein the real estate is situated; plaintiff may advertise a short description of the property rather than a complete legal description. b. c.

Upon confirmation of the sale, the Marshal shall hold the proceeds of the sale after costs and expenses of the sale pending distribution pursuant to further order of this court. 2 5.
