The good news is (in most states) if the property is listed for sale, advertised for sale, is being actively marketed for sale it would qualify for a bonafied effort to sell real estate and not be counted as an asset of hers at this time. SC Medicaid would place a second lien on the property. When, if it is sold, and if any money came to her after the uncle's Medicaid lien is paid she would have to spend down those funds appropiately or those funds would go to Medicaid to repay any money spend on her care.
The safe route is to place the property for sale. You do not have to use a realtor (some states you do) but could list it on Zillow, Trulia or other for sale by owner method.
If the paralegal knew that much I would go that lawyer and discuss a plan.
