What is the process if you want to sale your house, but it isn’t paid off yet?


Like if you still owe $15,000 and someone wants to buy it for $25,000. When you are buying it from a person, not a real estate agency. What steps need to be taken if you don’t have the money to pay off the balance before the other people pay you for the house. Any help will be appreciated.
~~~~We didn’t get a loan for this place. We signed a contract and are making monthly payments. ~~~~
*We did not use a mortage company. *
We are paying straight to the people we are buying it from.
