IS it better to install laminate than wood floors for a property?

My name is on the deed but mortage is in my dad's name, can I sell the house and keep the profit?
If the home is sold, the mortgage will have to be paid off in order to transfer a clear title to the new owner. You should have a lawyerr view your deed and mortgage to be sure.
