Before the sale of property on execution, notice of the sale shall be given as follows:

(1) notice of the sale of personal property is given by posting a written or printed notice of the time and place of sale in three public places within five miles of the place where the sale is to be held, not less than 10 days before the day of sale; one of the notices shall be posted at the post office nearest to the place where the sale is to take place;

(2) notice of the sale of real property is given by posting a similar notice particularly describing the property, including the property's street address if there is a street address for the property, not less than 30 days before the day of sale in three public places, as provided in (1) of this section, and publishing a copy of the notice four times, once a week for four successive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation published nearest to the place of sale; an inaccuracy in the street address may not be used to set aside a sale if the legal description is correct; in this paragraph, "newspaper of general circulation" means a publication that

(A) is published in newspaper format;

(B) is distributed at least once a week for at least 50 weeks each year within the judicial district, excluding a period when publication is interrupted by a labor dispute or by a natural disaster or other casualty that the publisher cannot control; and has a total paid circulation or paid distribution of at least 500 copies, or 10 percent of the total population of the judicial district, whichever is less; in this subparagraph, "judicial district" means the judicial district where the place of sale is located;

(C) holds a second class mailing permit from the United States Postal Service;

(D) is not published primarily to distribute advertising; and
