The problem is symptomatic of a buyer that has looked slightly above their budget line and resources and are now trying to figure out how to make it work. So ask questions first, good luck,

Financing Kentucky One Home at a Time
I answer questions about financing real estate based on my decades of experience dealing with mortgage underwriters. I do not offer legal or tax advice, if you need answers from an attorney or CPA find one knowledgeable in your local market.
Most of the Staten Island Agencies have a 10 day grace period for the purchaser to hold an engineer/termite inspection, possible negotiation (if inspection has issues) and review of contract. If your home is off the market for longer than 10 days you are at jeopardy.........
You agreed to a home inspection and it was done, both parties negotiated the inspection.....if the buyer is still not sure and wants to hold another inspection prior to signing contract....I would suggest going back on the market and continue to show the home. Let the buyer hold this inspection on their time not yours!! If you happen to get another buyer for the sale of the home go back to the first buyer and give them another option or right to refuse to move forward!
My answer is based on two similar experiences that had just occurred recently...... my seller client was OFF the market for two/three weeks in hopes of the buyer moving forward and in both cases the buyer walked away from the deal hence the seller lost three crucial weeks in a very busy market!!!
I hope this helps......and good luck!
