No, a vote on it, majority or otherwise, isn't binding and won't actually do anything. The only way to divide the property is by agreement with everybody signing off or by filing a partition suit in the court and having the judge issue an oder.
You can also go to mediation and try to resolve it or go to arbitration, but those are only binding if every one agrees to go. A mediation is essentially where all parties sit down with a neutral mediator and try to work out an agreement. An arbitration is like a mini-trial and if everyone agrees the decision of the arbitrator (like a judge) is binding and can be enforced through court.
