No one can give a guaranteed answer without seeing the offer and counter-offer documents, but there are 2 typical scenarios...
1) If the seller countered to only 1 buyer and the buyer signs it, it's a contract as soon as the buyer signs, as long as the buyer signs and returns the counter-offer BEFORE IT EXPIRES (see Paragraph 3). Your agent should know how to properly document the date/time the counter-offer was signed and returned.
2) If the seller submitted counter-offers to more than 1 buyer and checked the first box in Paragraph 4 (if California Association of REALTORS(R) Form CO was used for the counter-offer), then it is not a contract until the counter-offer is re-signed by the seller
