When is a deed purchase binding?

Question Details: I purchased a recreational 7 acres via discussion with a realtor yesterday. It turns out that the property is not what I thought it was, so after some research on the following morning I do not want it. I gave the realtor a check Thursday at 1 pm. Friday called and said I no longer want the property, called and told the treasurer's office to return the deed to sender. Am I legally binded to this? The deed transfer is not completed but the seller does have my money. No contract or anything else was signed.
