    Well it depends, if you do have to go through paypal then make sure you document everything in the paypal description box so if a dispute does occur it will be easier for them to side with you.

    Although if you are worried then you could always take the escrow fee hit. Remember if it is too good to be true and it will cause a massive loss to you then it might be best to be safe. However, if you can live without it then just go with your instinct.

    If he's really that reputable, he won't mind paying in a more secure fashion.
