No, if it is a signed properly executed contract.

If earnest money has been cashed and and closing is set
it might be best to have your agent contact the broker to discuss matters further.

Bruce,
Has your Realtor asked if there are more offers? And also if the Sellers are having 2nd thoughts about selling? I also agree with Tom about "Specific performance".

In simple terms, until a seller signs the deed and the deed is delivered to the buyer, there has not been a sale, however, once the offer is signed by both parties making the offer into a contract, each party is bound to "specific performance". As it relates to your situation, only if you agree to pay more money. Either party can ask, but it would be odd for the seller to win in this case.
