If a writ of execution on personal property is issued and a

If a writ of execution on personal property is issued and a public sale is held, what becomes of the property if nobody bids? Does the judgment debtor just keep it and sell it later in a non-public auction? Is there any accommodation for fair market value to the original debtor so that the judgment debt is reduced? For example, if a car is worth $5000 but nobody bids at the public auction and the creditor subsequently sells it in a non-public auction for $5000, does the judgment debtor get any credit on the overall judgment debt?

Doesn't the judgment creditor have responsibility to establish ownership before serving a writ of execution?

I am trying to collect a judgment from a small claims court

I am trying to collect a judgment from a small claims court in which I was awarded $1,298.53 plus court costs.I found the following:In Missouri the section 413.430.1 RSMoThe following property shall be exempt from attachment or execution to the extent of any person's interest therein:(1) Household furnishings, household goods, wearing apparel, appliances, books, animals, crops or musical instruments that are held primarily for personal, family or a dependent of such person not to exceed $3,000 in value in the aggregate.Does this mean that I can attach any of these items if the total amount being collected is not over $3,000 or if what I am attaching is not valued more than $3,000.I'm just trying to get the money to pay off the vet bills for the pup this breeder didn't properly vaccinated against Parvo. The dog died of Parvo in 3 days from being picked up.
