My Mother Died and Her Home was Homestead. Am I Obligated to Sell The Home in Order to Pay Creditors?

In Florida, Homestead protects a property against claims from creditors after the homeowner dies.  In other words, the only creditor allowed to demand payment and can make you sell the home to get paid is somebody who is holding a lien against the home.
