Hello. Another expert here and I'll try to assist. You haven't provided much information, so I have to presume certain facts. First, if the property is now in an estate over which you are the administrator, in most states you are prohibited from buying property from it. You will first have to close the estate, distribute the property to the heirs, which includes your brother, you, your sister and any other siblings. (If brother has already been given his share all in cash, he can Quitclaim Deed his interest to you and sister.) You can then use the cash you get from the estate to buy both your brother's interests provided they'll sell to you. If your sister won't sell to you, or you to her, then a court can order a partition sale and you could be the buyer at such a sale. I will be away from the computer for most of today and will be returning Sunday late afternoon.
