the buyer and i have come to an agreement on the price,the buyer made arrangement with the transsport company for the pickup but they will not be able to pick it up for 2 to 3 weeks and i have not asked for a deposit,i also have another buyer here local that wants it and will pickit up this weekend and will pay 1500.00 more.the second buyer asked if i had taken a deposit on it i said no. i agreed with the first buyer and i will keep my word on selling it to him first even if im taking 1500.00 less,should i ask for a deposit?

Absolutely - I have been screwed several times in the same situation....2-3weeks gives them time to keep looking for a better deal....

Yes make sure you tell him it is non-refundable that way you will get something for your toruble if he decides to skip out,, if he is serious then he will send it to you with out a fuss

I've come off as an asshole in the eyes of a few people but my golden rule is that the first person who puts money into my hand for whatever I'm selling is the person who I sell it to. Simple as that. I've held onto stuff many times only for buyers to back out at the last minute... fuck that.

Get one for sure if the other guy goes by the name of SD Wheeler, runs over mailboxes, and drops his glass eye.

I would tell him you have another buyer that will pay 1500 more and he needs to send full payment or it's going to the other guy, first come first serve
