This would be similar to a provision in a Trust. The difference is with a Trust, the named Trustee of the Trust has the authority to sell and distribute your assets. In a Will, the person who is assigned as Personal Representative has the authority.
What the provision means that assets can be sold by the Personal Representative without having to obtain a court order to do. But note, that the Personal Representative will have authority to do sell property as the Probate Court will have recognized the Personal Representative and granted him/her authority to administer the estate.
Also, if you recently remarried and your Will states all assets will go to your spouse, then your current spouse inherits your assets and unless other language is used in the Will, your children will not necessarily end up with your property.
All my best & encouragement.
