If judgment is rendered for the plaintiff in an action in attachment, it shall be satisfied as follows: So much of the property in the hands of the levying officer, after applying the money arising from the sale of perishable property and so much of the personal property, and lands and tenements, whether held by legal or equitable title, as is necessary, shall be sold by order of the court, under the same restrictions and regulations as if it had been levied on by execution. The money arising therefrom, with the amount which is recovered from the garnishee, shall be applied to satisfy the judgment and costs. If there is not enough to satisfy them, the judgment shall stand and execution may issue thereon for the residue, as in other cases. Any surplus of the attached property or its proceeds shall be returned to the defendant.
