How do I purchase my mother's home from her estate with there being three beneficiaries?
How do I buy my mother's house from her estate? Would I pay total appraised value or one-third of it due to there being three children of which I am one?
In order to purchase the home from your mother's estate, the executor of her estate would have to agree, on behalf of the estate to sell the home to you for an agreed price. Generally, the price for the sale would be the fair market value of the property, but assuming you are a one-third beneficiary of your mother's estate, you are correct that you would only have to actually pay two-third of that figure because you are a one-third beneficiary of the estate.
