They can ask, its called negotiating....
You do not have to accept it, but you could lose the sale, you can also offer a revised amount,
and depending on the sale price and whether it will appraise out, you may add it to the sale price
and then return it to the buyer for payment of closing costs at the closing table, but careful.
You should get some input and suggestions from your Realtor, you are working with one are you not?
Good luck to you.
Hope this helps...
