George,
Probably, but you may upset the other four. If you can't buy it on your own, what options do you have? Sometimes in situations nostalgia overwhelms some and causes them to make difficult decisions.
You'll need to consult an attorney to see what your legal options may be. My suggestion is to proceed in a way that would make the person who left you the home proud of their beneficiaries, not miserable.

Sorry George, No income verification loans don't exist any more because the federal government has made laws forcing lenders to verify a borrower's ability to repay the loan. Uncle Sam feels (rightly so) that a large reason the real estate market collapsed was because thousands of borrowers were given loans that they had no realistic hopes of affording long term.

With that being said, there are some specialized loans out there that will document your ability to pay based on:
-an asset depletion model where if you have a very large amount of assets they use this as proof you can afford to pay, OR
- a model where they review bank statements for 24 months for a self employed borrower, and if your regular deposits reflect a sufficient amount to qualify they can use that.

These programs are generally going to require a large down payment (check) and the rates are going to be higher than for a conventional loan.

Feel free to give me a shout and I can fill you in on how these work

If selling yourself without an agent, you will have to do it thru zillow.com, fizber.com, etc. you can get an MLS number thru MLS for owners.com & other MLS websites that do it for a fee. You can also find a licensed realtor who will do it for a flat fee. ... more

Trulia is an agent only platform. Your agent will have to post the open house.

Jeffrey Hopkins CBR answered:
What colors should I paint the outside of my house?

As you look at homes on Long Island, you will find that the overwhelming majority of LI homes are painted with neutral colors. When I say neutral, I mean colors like white, beige, browns and grey's. The reasons is simple, they work, they don't stick out like a sore thumb. They remain congruous to the rest of the neighborhood and for that reason the upkeep and grooming of a home become the real factors in the homes curb appeal. The better a home is groomed the better the curb appeal.

If brighter, less neutral colors are used they should be concentrated primarily on the trim.

Be aware that scams do exist; be mindful that such web sites are third party sites, they are not real estate companies and used for advertising purposes; the information is fed by various sources, therefore data is not really verified. If you choose not to work with an agent of your own always verify ownership before exchanging any money/personal information--make certain they are who they claim to be. Never wire any money, if it sounds too good to be true, it is. For scam related information see link.
