The most dangerous question to ask your Real Estate agent.  By most agent standards, this one is not difficult, but it could uncomfortable for some.  "At what point can I cancel my deal and still keep my deposit?"

Happy Valencia home buyersLook at it this way, you show a bunch of homes, probably write many offers, finally have one accepted after the countering process, and your client springs this one on you.

That is why we cover this question and many others, regarding the real estate procurement process, in our Crash Course on Real Estate at our REMAX of Valencia CA offices.

It is horrible not to know the full story and to be lead the path to destruction.

The best thing you can do is team up with a knowledgeable Realtor that does not mind covering the process. Even talking about scenarios that may not occur to you.

By the real estate agent conveying their experiences, you will be armed with knowledge and know what to watch out for when making one of the largest investments of your life, real estate.
