As long as it takes to pack his stuff and leave. Shouldn't take long, right?

No problem applying for ESTA in the future.

No. He is allowed a reasonable time to leave... but there's no definition of the word "reasonable". Some people suggest 10 days, some 30 days. I think two weeks is reasonable. That said, if his visa is stamped "D/S" that means it's unlikely that anyone from US immigration is ever going to come looking for him.

If it's in reasonably good shape, he can donate the furniture to Goodwill - in fact, they'll pick it up.

It's practically brand new, one careful student owner (lol)...but excellent idea.
