She needs to refinance the home just in her and her new husband's name. If they cannot refinance, I doubt they would be willing to sell the home or give their share of the home to you and let you sell it.

This should have been resolved in your divorce. Did you have any kind of marital settlement agreement or is there a court order for equitable distribution which addressed what would happen to the real estate? If so, you may need to go back to divorce court to have your ex wife held in contempt for not abiding by the terms of any agreement or court order.
