Mortgage  Question?
Mortgage to buy-out relatives that I own home with

My mother willed her house to me and my two sisters. I would like to keep it but I do not have the funds to buy them out. Can I get a mortgage that would pay them off so I could keep the house?

As long as you qualify for the mortgage based on your financial profile (monthly income and debt) and credit score, you should be able to obtain a mortgage to buy-out your sisters and own the property outright. Please note that lender qualification requirements may be different depending on if the property is owner-occupied (you plan on living in the property) or non-owner occupied (you plan on renting the property). For example, some lenders require lower loan-to-value (LTV) ratios of 70% or less for non-owner occupied properties. Additionally, you will have to be able to take legal ownership of the property from your Mother's estate when the mortgage closes.
