We live in Ohio.
The property is in Florida.

My condolences for your loss. If the current deed names your Father as the sole owner of the property and you have a power of attorney giving you the authority to transact in real estate, this suffices for you to be able to list and sell the property. Best of luck to you and your family.
Usually there will be a court order that distributes the property according to the Will. If that was done there is no need to record another deed transferring the property to your father. This is something that is usually handled by the probate attorney. If you have a POA for your Dad you do not have to prepare another deed to sell it for him (and I would caution transferring out of your father's name for tax reasons). If the POA grants you the power to sell real estate (which most do) you can sell the property under your father's name and sign on his behalf using the POA. The title company handling the closing will need to record the POA in the official records.
