How much weight would you give landscaping in the final inspection of a residential property. I did the proposed construction appraisal--upper level house in the country, on some acreage--for $300,000 +/-. Comes time for the final inspection, I go out there, and there's no landscaping of any kind. Just dirt. I mention that in the final inspection report, indicate that I had figured they'd spend $2,000 on landscaping (sod, shrubbery, etc.). I even say something to the effect of "in relation to the total value of the property, the lack of landscaping is a minor issue..." Turns into a big deal with the underwriter, and now everybody's mad at me. Now I wonder if I should have mentioned it at all. Anybody got an opinion on this?
