I can't read all this, but its not her call to NOT sell the house. Lawyer up.

She can buy it back at fair market value if thats what she wants to do.

Ya I don't buy it either. Unless the rest of the family is made up of multi-millionaires that don't need any money for say a kids education. The older sister needs to grow up and do whats right.

This is stupid. Your niece can pay cash for the place? So she should be able to buy this house if she wants it that bad at whatever price you throw at her. Why should she get a discount?

Try again - it is a prejudicial comment and trying to put down a group - very not cool and bad attempt at hateful speech. It is not true - because it is an attempt to classify a member of a group as representative of that group (in this case, as a cheat) that YOU DON"T KNOW. This is clear prejudice, why is it ok to denigrate someone for income but not for race or gender? There are countless examples of very rich people giving much to charity, are they cheating others?

There are countless examples of poor people cheating others. Many need to look no further than their own families. Often the poorest family members are the ones who are always trying to pull a fast one.

You are being a complete hypocrite if you do not see that it is wrong.

This is a good way to frame the issue to sis: "You expect me to shortchange my children's education (inheritance, etc) so you can preserve memories and your daughter can buy the property at half value and, in essence, receive an outsized inheritance?"

Well said.

IMHO, it is grossly unfair for one grandchild to receive a $600,000 inheritance/benefit from grandma & grandpa that the other grandchildren do not receive. We get along great in my family, but even the kindest, sweetest, most understanding sibling/first cousin would immediately see how unfair that is to the rest of their generation and be resentful.

It is hard to imagine that your siblings do not "see" that issue/problem.

Leaving your sister aside for the moment, do you care about your other siblings' feelings?

Are you prepared to cut ties with all those who are literally begging you not to hire a lawyer?

Finally, I don't think this is primarily a real estate issue, and it is beyond time that it should be moved to a relationship forum.

You are under no obligation to inform any of your siblings if you decide to consult with an attorney. And "consulting" doesn't necessarily mean "hiring"...get the info you want/need from someone who is qualified, and *then* make an informed decision.
