Estimate Mineral Rights Value in Texas

It can be difficult to impossible to estimate mineral rights value in Texas.   The reason is that there are many factors that play a role in the value.   However, there are some general ballpark estimates we can use to estimate mineral rights value.   It is important to point out that the estimates provided below are simply that, an estimate!  If you have an offer to sell mineral rights we can nearly always find you a higher price!

To estimate mineral rights value in Texas, you first need to determine what type of property you have.   Depending on the status of your property we will estimate mineral rights value in Texas differently.

Producing Mineral Rights Value in Texas

If you get a monthly royalty check you have producing mineral rights.  One of the easiest ways to estimate value is based upon cash flow.  The royalty income you get each month can be a good indication of the mineral rights value in Texas.   As a general rule of thumb, you can expect to sell mineral rights in Texas for 4 years to 6 years times the average monthly income.  Keep in mind many factors could cause your property to be worth more or less.

To estimate mineral rights value in Texas, simply take gather your last 3 months of check stubs.  Then find the average amount you have received from the last 3 months.  You can then plug your average monthly income into the calculator below:

Keep in mind that this estimate is based on the royalty income only.  If more wells can be drilled on your property you may get offers significantly higher than this estimate.  If you have a higher offer to sell mineral rights do not simply accept the offer.   Make sure you are getting a fair offer to sell mineral rights by listing at US Mineral Exchange.

Leased Mineral Rights Value in Texas

Non-Producing Mineral Rights Value in Texas

If your mineral rights are not leased or producing you have non-producing mineral rights.  Unfortunately if you have non-producing mineral rights there will typically be little to no value.   As a general rule of thumb, the value will nearly always be less than $1,000/acre.  In most cases, the mineral rights value in Texas for non-producing minerals will be $0 to $250.   It really depends on how long ago you were leased or if you have current offers.   The reason non-producing mineral rights don’t have much value is because the upside is very low.  A mineral rights buyer could purchase the mineral rights but then be stuck holding them for years with no return on investment.

Offer to Sell Mineral Rights?

Do you have an offer to sell mineral rights in Texas?  If so, be cautious accepting an offer until you know it represents fair market value.  While an offer can be a good indication of mineral rights value in Texas, there is nearly always a better price available.   We see a lot of mineral owners make a common mistake.  They gather up a few offers using the shotgun approach and then quickly sell below market value.   Before you sell below market value consider listing mineral rights at US Mineral Exchange to ensure you sell for maximum value.

    We had a super experience working with Terra on the sale of our mineral rights. She was very patient with us and explained everything very clearly, which was helpful since we had no experience in this area, and she never talked down to us depite our ignorance. She was also professional in that she paid attention to every detail, down to indicating the paper size that was required for printing our documents! She kept us informed at every step of the process. She clearly knows her field well and made suggestions that allowed us to receive an excellent price for our rights. I would highly recommend using USME for any sale you are considering.read more

    My aging mother-in-law needed to sell some mineral rights in Oklahoma and Kansas. I was the family member "appointed" to find a buyer(s). I knew NOTHING about energy or mineral rights. However, I "stumbled" onto the US Mineral Exchange website and connected with their rep Terra Castagna. Terra patiently explained their process for getting rights evaluated and sold. The value of our rights did not meet the threshold for their usual sales, but Terra offered to make our rights known to potential buyers of smaller positions. In a very short time several buyers expressed interest and we quickly reached an agreement with one who was willing to buy both rights. We could not be happier with the service provided by US Mineral Exchange, and in particular, with Terra Costagna, and would unreservedly endorse their services.read more

    Selling oil and mineral rights is not a common practice, or at least not for us. We went from "how on earth will we do this and do it right" to a very successful sale in record time. I am so happy that we found US Mineral Exchange. From the first phone call they were professional, answered all of my questions, and walked me through every step of the process with calm professionalism, and brought a price exceeding our expectations. From a seller's perspective, it could not have gone better! I wholeheartedly recommend US Mineral Exchange and gladly serve as a reference.read more

    I contacted US Mineral Exchange in hopes to sell my families old mineral rights. Though the claims were too small for their business to sell they had great information for me and my situation. Highly recommend this company!
