I am not licensed t practice law in your state but I can offer some general advice.
Sorry your fact pattern is very confusing to me. In bankruptcy you can exempt up to $15,000 of home stead under the federal exemptions (this may be more in your state). However, you can take a homestead exemption on property that you do not live in.
If you want to provide some more details I or another attorney may be able to give you some more comments.
