Rich Reed answered:
Your profile says you're in ME and are asking about selling in CA. Is that right?
Real estate contracts in CA that are properly executed by parties capable of contracting are binding. Real estate contracts can be complicated, so you should consult with your Realtor and your legal counsel about your specific situation.
Hope this helps!
