He doesn't have to continue to hold this asset in the estate until it sells. Rather, what he should o since the siblings want things distributed is to transfer title to the property to the siblings in their undivided percentage interests. He would do this by signing a quit claim deed as executor of the estate. The deed would then need to be witnessed and notarize and recorded in the real property records. Then, each sibling would be obligated to pay their share of the costs of the house. If any of the siblings didn't want their share of the house given the problems, they could sign an Affidavit of Disclaimer of Inheritance.
