First one with the money wins. A lot of people like to kick tires and nothing else.

Yeah, agree.
These is why you put a down payment on some items.
If you want it. Pay now. Make the deal. Can't leave people hanging.
At least let them know where you are coming from. Or ask can you hold for me a few days or what ever.

sell or trade?

either way it's a "gentlemen's" contract. In a outright purchase a deposit could be negotiated as a show of good faith between both parties.

In an equal swap all you have to rely on is the other party's word. It might be your best interest in this case to swap phone numbers and maintain communication between both parties.

Personally I have seen direct sales where I heard nothing and it took weeks for the purchase to arrive...

IMHO

Yeah agree. tough call.
I always do my best to be an honest person.
And keep my word.
In this case I think lac of communication.
