Can a seller add more land and higher price to original offer?

We put an offer on a parcel of land in Wa. state. The counter offer came back with a more land attached to it saying we had to buy both parcels at double what we were wanting to pay. It is a good price for all the land they are offering, but we only wanted the first parcel. Is this legal?

Yes they can.  Being in a rural area we have this happen frequently.  A lot of times a seller will have large acreage and only list the home and a few acres to keep the price down.  Then in negotiations add more to it if the buyer wishes to have more land.

The seller owns it and can say or counter any way they want. There is nothing that says a seller must do anything and you can't force them to sell if they don't want to. They can tell you that you must buy them a new cadillac, if they want to, and you have the right to say no and walk away.
