MY DECEASED BROTHER AND MY DECEASED SISTER'S SPOUSES ARE BOTH WILLING TO TAKE THEIR NAME OFF OF THE DEED SO WE CAN SELL THE HOUSE EVENTUALLY. WHEN MY MOM CAN NO LONGER CARE FOR HERSELF, SHE WILL COME AND LIVE WITH ME AND WE ARE PUTTING THAT MONEY IN AN ACCOUNT FOR MOM.

Deeds with multiple family members can be tricky.  If your deceased siblings' spouses were on the deed, you probably can accoplish this simply with a new deed.  If only your deceased siblings' names were on the deed, their ownership interest is an asset of their estate and the estate would need to be opened in order to pass clear title to the remainder of you.  I'd need to see the current deed and could probably tell you after a brief consult. 

I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.

Real Estate
Real estate attorneys can help individuals, families and small business with all property-related legal issues. Buyers and sellers of residential and commercial real estate should work with an attorney to negotiate the terms of agreement; draft and review the contract; review related paperwork (such as loan agreements); clear existing liens on a property; and attend the closing. Lawyers can also assist property owners with addressing zoning/rezoning issues and appealing property tax assessment. Landlords and tenants should work with real estate law firms to draft and review lease agreement, handle eviction proceedings and resolve landlord-tenant disputes.
