pbpapa: "You don't say how much gain is involved, but if it is substantial, you might want to offer some consideration to the buyer to extend the escrow so as to meet the two year requirement. Such as, some reduction in price and/or renting to the buyer (all rent applies to purchase) for the two month period."

I have lost track of this thread, but if the problem is the two years ownership, then it will also miss the two years occupied, and pushing the closing back and renting to the buyers will not address the two years' occupancy requirement.
