You'll need to make sure the house is in your name before you sell it. Then, interview a few real estate people. You can get names from friends who have used them, or use someone whose name you see on the neighborhood for sale signs. They can tell you the small things you'll need to do to make the house saleable. Do those, and then hire one of them. This may cost you money in commission (5 to 7%, may be negotiable). Otherwise, you can go to one of those "sell by owner" places and they will help you for less money. The final choice is to go directly to a title company and they will handle the closing transaction for you and your buyer. A real estate agent told me once that it is always worth trying to sell it on your own for 3 weeks before signing with a real estate agent. However, if you haven't gone through the process before, the easiest is the real estate agent.
If the house will be yours then you can buy the house without a license. If the house belongs to you then you can sell it without a license. However, I highly recommend that you use a real estate agent when buying and selling real estate. When buying real estate, title searches need to be performed to determine who is the rightful owner and what debt and taxes are levied against the property. When selling real estate, the buyer's credit and financial ability has to be determined before selling the property to the buyer. If these things are not done properly you could end up getting ripped off big time.

Should you use your personal tax ID or the estate tax ID when selling the house of a decendant?
A person's estate is all the property owned including real and personal property. In another sense an estate is a large piece of landed property with an elaborate house on it.

An estate agent is the person usually employed to sell a person's property. Usually with the aid of a solicitor employed by the seller/owner of the property.
No. Real property owned by two (or more) people as joint tenants passes automatically to the surviving joint tenant upon the death of the other.
Generally the devise of the dwelling house mean the home and real property on which it stands. The contents of the house are personal property. Usually a will provides more explicit instructions for the distribution of the personal property inside the house. If not, that property may pass into the "residue" of the estate and would be shared by the heirs as intestate property. You should seek the advice of the attorney who is handling the estate. The estate must be probated if there is real property in order that the title to the real property will vest in the devisee.
The executor can rent the house. They are responsible for making sure the estate stays solvent and the property is taken care of.
Generally a life estate entitles the beneficiary to all property rights except the right to sell or otherwise transfer the fee in the property. It cannot be defeated by the conveyance of the property. If the house was sold the buyer would acquire it subject to the life estate. If the life estate holder desires to relinquish the life estate in order to sell the property then she/he may join in the deed of conveyance and the life estate will end.
You pay property gains tax when you are selling a house or large property. There are exceptions to this so consulting an attorney for your particular situation may be wise.
First, the estate must be probated in order for legal title to the real estate to pass to the heirs. You need to consult with an attorney who specializes in probate law in your area. The attorney will assist you in filing the probate and then advise you about selling the property. The property could be sold through the estate or by all the heirs once the estate is settled.
No. A real estate agent earns a commission as a percentage of the selling price of the house only after the successful completion of the sale. The commission (usually around 6% of the selling price) is split between the agency listing the property and the agency selling the property, if they are not one and the same. The individual agent(s) are paid a portion of this commission, the amount depending on the contract each agent has with their indivdual agencies.
The executor should make sure that insurance is current on property in the estate.

Legal Property Documents and Property Valuation are general requirements for selling property in Australia. These two things are very important for the buyer who want to buy any house.
Yes, the house will be decreed to you, your siblings, mother or whoever it is left to in the will. The decree will be recorded in the Land Records. Then you can sell it as the owners rather than the estate selling it.
Real estate agents mainly manage real estates of their clients. Whether it is overseeing the procedure of a selling house or a rented house, it is their job to do that.
When property is owned as joint tenants with the right of survivorship the property is NOT part of the estate of the first joint owner to die.

An executor that is also the only heir doesn't need to by property of the estate; he (or she) will get it all anyway. If you're asking "Can I buy Grandma's house from her estate for a dollar instead of selling it for a fair price so her estate can repay its creditors?" then no, that would be illegal. A decedent's debts must be paid before any property can be distributed to the heirs. If the property must be sold to pay creditors it must be sold for fair market value. In that case, the heir can purchase the property for FMV and pay the debts through the estate or pay the debts from their own funds so they can inherit the property free and clear. You should obtain advice from the attorney who is handling the estate.
