Real estate in a will

When it comes to real estate in a will, it usually makes the most sense to probate it. MoneySense said, "You also ask if you must apply for a Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee with a will. This is a specific Ontario term. Ontario uses gender-neutral terms such as ‘estate trustee’ with a will or without a will." Including real estate in a will can be tricky business, so it's often best to meet with professionals and discuss the options when writing the will. 

Should you probate a will that includes real estate?

Our father just passed away and my sister and I are co-executors and the only beneficiaries to his will. Do we need to obtain the Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee with a will and do we need to go through probate? His estate is composed of a joint chequing account with me, a vehicle, RRIFs (with me and my sister as beneficiaries) and his fully paid house located in Ontario, which was jointly owned by himself and our mom who predeceased him.
