REThink Real Estate
If you do, you do so at your own risk -- the risk of losing the cash you've spent if the bank does not approve your offer for any reason.
The seller -- to answer your second question, Mike -- does not owe you any compensation for breach of contract, unless you were already notified that the bank had already approved your offer.
