I've been considering doing sewer scopes as another ancillary service. Especially since I talked to get a couple gentlemen from Seattle (Sorry guys, I don't remember your names). I have been asking agents their opinions about this service. Some say they would recommend it. Some say they will not. Others are a flip of a coin if they would recommend it or not.
Some of my questions are:
1) What scopes would you recommend?
2) Do you use the locator as part of it?
3) Is the locator really needed?
4) What are the fees you charge. Yes I know every market will be different.
5) Does anyone make this a standard part of your inspection with elevated pricing or is it kept as an add on service?
I have recently received an email from OREP with an article from a plumber talking about various points without getting specific about anything. I'd be willing to post that if someone has an interest in reading it.

I personally recommend having this service done. When scheduling we give the guidelines on when we would recommend to have this service added. At my personal home we have had tree roots grow into ours. When we bought the home none of these services were recommended and I wish they had been. I share this information with buyers and let them decide whether it is something they would like to add.
