That the balance of the purchase price be paid within 10 days of confirmation of sale or be forfeited is mandatory and is not waivable by the court as a matter of equity. The purchaser has a right to notice of when the sale has been confirmed, when the mortgagor's redemption period ends, and when the 10-day payment period expires. GMAC Mortgage Corp. v. Gisvold, 215 Wis. 2d 459, 572 N.W.2d 466 (1998), 96-1663.
