purchasing home of deceased parent

here is my problem, my father and stepmother recently passed away, there are 3 natural children of my dads and 4 children from my step mother. my sister and 1 step sister are co trustees of the trust my father set up. my sister wants me to purchase the home that my dad lived in when he died, there is still $51k remaining on the loan, the house was recently appraised for $178k, if it goes on the market it will not sell for this price. she states that if I can get a mortgage for the remaining bal plus the step/natural sibling 80%. How would I go about getting a mortgage for $ 143,320.00 to pay off mortgage and other interests in the house ?

Hi Deann,

It would be structured as any other purchase would be, the estate would get the profit and that would pay off the debts and the mortgage, you would, in turn get a home with 20% eequity built in. Sounds like a good deal, provided you are in the market to buy a home.

Cheers,
Kim

Is the mortgage in your father's name?

You may think of a cash out [url=http://www.mortgagefit.com/refinance.html]refinance[/url].
The extra cash that you will receive will help you to pay off the other interest.

You have to talk to your lender about this.

Welcome darlene,

You can sign a quitclaim deed and transfer the property to your son. You should contact a real estate attorney and he will be the best to help you in this matter.
