Wide Angle Lens Recommendations?

Hi guys, I first picked up a nifty fifty for my 6d as I watched a lot of comparisons of the 1.8 vs 1.4 and couldn't justify the 3x price difference. I then was being asked to shoot sports photography for money and went out and bought a 70-200mm f/4 for $370 on Ebay! (It works fine despite my skepticism.)

Anyways! I now would like to have a lens on the lower end, however, I have a philosophy that unless the subject is something moving or hard to get to, you only need a prime.

I wanted to get into restaurant/real estate photography and I don't see why you would need a zoom for those wide shots, so should I get a 20mm prime or what are your recommendations. I also looked at the 17-40 f/4 but have heard it's not too sharp.

Budget $400-500 USED LENS (They're about 40% less $)
