You can place the property in an "irrevocable trust" which would protect it from creditors and name a trustee and make yourself primary beneficiary and the children successor beneficiaries. You would also be able to have a clause inserted that would allow you to direct the sale of the property by the trustee. The only thing is that with an irrevocable trust you cannot direct the trust for your own benefit, so while you can direct the trustee to sell, the proceeds would have to go back into the trust for the trustee to administer for you as beneficiary (which means the trustee can buy a new house for the trust for you to live in or pay your living expenses from the money as needed). You need to sit with a local trust attorney to review all of your assets to determine the best specific way to devise the trust based on those assets and your needs.
