Let's say one has a relative/parent who needs a life saving operation but does not have the financial means to pay for it or even get a loan, is one required to sell his property to help them?

The passuk says "Tzedaka Tatzil Mimavess" (Mishlei 10:2) so while it may not be a chiyuv according Halacha, it certainly would be a legit segula to save them.
Lo saamod al dam reechah is not docheh pikuach nephesh, so if it would disrupt your marriage for example to sell your house you need not do so to facilitate the operation.
