Yeah, a couple of weeks is a potential deal killer (unless you are lucky). I would do whatever was necessary to get there and get it done. It's spring time and shoppers are out there. Selling things fast is where it's at. When things sit people wonder if they are priced too high which hurts the seller. If it comes off the market and then returns again a few weeks later people wonder why the first buyer backed out which also hurts the seller. Fingers crossed for you!If you haven't given him some money, he can back out without consequence. I would suggest you give him some funds before closing and paper it over.
