How much does a scratch effect an ultra wide?

I am considering to buy an ultra wide lens (at a discounted price of course) which has a scratch on the front element. But how much would this actually affect my images, if at all?

I would mostly be using it for real estate interiors but also sometimes landscapes and night photography in the city as wel as maybe giving astrophotography a shot.

Here is the scratch:
