No. Only mortgages and liens associated with the home need to be paid off from the proceeds of the sale. Credit card debts are not liens on the home unless there has been a lawsuit and the creditor has secured a lien against your home. A title search on the property would indicate whether there are liens. If not, the only things that need to be paid off are mortgages.
