She cannot force the sale of the home, but she can file a lawsuit and request that the property be partitioned. The judge would decide if the property would be subject to sale. Judges generally give the person who does not want to sell the property the opportunity to buy out the other owner(s). This would only be possible if there were not terms included in the will forbidding the sale of the property, such as the bequest of a life estate.

Can one sibling be selected to be executor of the estate even though all 5 children have been assigned as executors of the estate?

* Generally there are only one or two Executors to a Will. Executor (male) or Executrix (female.) It is odd there should be five Executors. An Executor/Executrix has the right to decline to handle the wishes of the said Will and this is the reason for basically having a back up Executor or Executrix. The group of siblings should get together and decide who will be handling the Will as Executor or Executrix. If one is chosen then they should get a fee for their trouble which is anywhere from one to four percent of the entire Estate (property, monies, etc.) and that will be up to the other siblings unless otherwise stipulated in the Will.

Rights of 25 percent ownership of property?

I will assume you are referring to a twenty five percent undivided interest in real property. A person who owns an undivided twenty percent interest in real property has the right to the use and possession of the whole property. If the property is partitioned or sold that person will receive twenty five percent of the net proceeds from the sale. That person should also be responsible for paying twenty five percent of the costs to maintain the property unless some other arrangement is agreed to by the other owners.
