    Poor garden state and resale value of a house


    I'm looking at a few properties right now. One has a garden that is a particularly poor state. How can I tell if the poor state of the garden has been taken into account as a percentage reduction of the overall value of a property? Should it be for that matter? I want to ensure I'm getting a reasonable price while weighing things up. Thank you!

    "See if you can find a similar house for sale in the same street/area and see how the house compares. Then calculate how much the garden will take to make good, add that to the asking price and then you can decide.
    Ultimately, a house is only worth what someone is prepared to pay. Play on the state of the garden and offer way below the asking price. You never know. Dave"
