If not I would contact your attorney and ask them to re-review the contract and explain your options. If you have no attorney I have several local (to Albany) Attorneys that I work with that specialize in residential real estate, I would be more than happy to recommend.

If this is a new, recent contract, and the attorney approval period has not passed...attorneys are given at minimum 3 days once both the seller and buyer sign a contract...then you can have the attorney modify the contract to add an escape clause (30 days for example and any other terms you like such as being able to pursue looking until the seller's home is under contract) or you can have the attorney cancel the contract for any reason whatsoever during this attorney approval period. Was the sellers contingency put into the contract that you put together with your agent??? Was it added by the sellers agent??? Was it verbally expressed? Usually this type of contingency is added to paragraph 8, other terms on the 2nd page of the standard contract. I hope that helps a bit; feel free to contact me at any point if you should stop working with your current agent. Best of luck
