I think you have every right and should not agree to the lower price for the reason you stated, an agreement was made, but also so this doesn’t become a “learned” tactic that more people start using. If they think you’re a jerk, Who cares? You won’t see them again ... they are likely just mad they’re “scheme” didn’t work which reflects as anger to you. If someone did that to me I would say something like “oh that’s a bummer, well I have other buyers interested who (if true) could pay the price I agreed to so unless you want to go get the rest of the money and come back, I’m sorry this didn’t work out, maybe if this happens Again it would be wise to message the seller and let them know to see if that’s ok to prevent a wasted trip like this”. You had an set price, you every right to give them the opportunity to come back, especially mentioning why they didn’t contact you first. If they complain about the drive, then definitely say “you should have asked me but from your frustration it seems you were under the expectation the price would be lowered and drove here planning to pay the lower cost so I’m sorry you didn’t call first” Don’t feel bad, 9/10 times it was intentional I assure you, because who wouldn’t call .....?
