List Mineral Rights at US Mineral Exchange – Standard Listing

When you list mineral rights for sale think of it like putting your home on the market.   When you sell your home, you do everything you can to show buyers the best possible qualities of your home.  You make sure the lawn is in great shape, the house is clean, and you’ve done everything you can to get the house ready for sale.   You hire a real estate agent to market the property to prospective buyers to give the property the exposure it needs to sell for maximum value.

When you list mineral rights for sale, it’s imperative that you provide all the information buyers need.   One of the most common mistakes we see mineral owners make is not taking the time to gather proper documentation.    If you want to sell mineral rights for maximum value, the best thing you can do is make it easy on buyers.  This encourages bidding and ensures a better price for you.

Why List Mineral Rights at US Mineral Exchange

There are two primary reasons to list mineral rights at US Mineral Exchange:

  1. We will ensure your mineral rights sell for the highest market price available
  2. We will help guide you through the process from start to finish to ensure everything goes smoothly and you don’t get taken advantage of

US Mineral Exchange consistently helps mineral owners get the best price because we have a large network of buyers.   The key to selling mineral rights for the highest price is exposure.  When you quickly accept an unsolicited offer from buyers you end up selling below market value.   Selling mineral rights to a quality property is easy.  Locating the buyer who will pay the highest price is the hard part.  That is where US Mineral Exchange can help.  You can provide us with your best offer in writing and we don’t get paid unless we can beat the offer.  This makes listing a risk free way to ensure you get the best price.

In addition to finding the best price for selling mineral rights, our company will also stand beside you through the entire process.  We will review the purchase and sale agreement, mineral deed, and also provide you with an escrow process that ensures you are protected.   While having an attorney review legal documents is always recommended, our company can quickly point out any red flags during the process at no cost you.

Who should list mineral rights at US Mineral Exchange?

Our standard listing is perfect for mineral owners who either:

A) Do not have an offer in hand

B) Who have an offer but would not settle for the best price you have been offered

Note:  If you have an offer in hand that you would seriously consider accepting, we recommend an auction listing

Prior to activating your listing we will discuss a good starting bid point.   While you are not committing to sell for this price, it is important to give buyers a ball park starting point.  We typically base this on either existing offers, our recommendation (if no offers), or an amount that you are set on getting before you are willing to sell.   We ask for a starting bid because buyers spend significant time evaluating each property.   It would not be fair to buyers to ask them to submit bids with no general idea of what it will take.  This leads to buyers submitting offers on properties that are far below what the mineral owner would even consider.

One of the most common concerns from mineral owners is picking a starting bid that is too low.  When you pick a starting bid that is too low, mineral buyers will bid the property higher.  A starting bid is simply that.  A starting bid.  The starting bid is the minimum price you would at least consider selling for. If it is worth more the market will bid it higher and it will sell for fair market value.   The most common mistakes we see mineral owners makes is picking a starting bid that is too high.  If you start the bidding above market it will sit for weeks or months until we drop the price into fair market value territory.

With our standard listing,  your are not committed to selling your mineral rights when you list. With that said, we do ask that you be reasonably serious about selling your mineral rights.  Buyers spend significant time evaluating each property and it would not be fair to them if you list property just to get a feel for pricing if you have no intention of selling.

How to sell mineral rights at US Mineral Exchange with a standard listing

To get started with a standard listing at US Mineral Exchange we need some documentation.  Providing us with the necessary documentation is the first step to reaching thousands of mineral buyers.  We completely understand that gathering this documentation is a pain.  We also understand that this is another hoop to jump through when selling mineral rights.  Some mineral owners don’t want to gather documentation and leave thousands of dollars on the table!  Don’t let that be you!   This documentation is key to setting up the listing for maximum sale value.

Here is the documentation that we need to create your listing:

If you receive royalty income:

  • Check Stubs –  We need to see full copies of your 3 most recent check stubs.  This is NOT the summary or total payment amount.  It needs to be the full detail showing the wells you are being paid on, revenue interest, etc.  If you do not have copies, please contact the operator who is paying you royalties to obtain copies.
  • Existing Offers –  Please provide us with your best offer in writing.

If your property is leased, but you do NOT receive royalty income:

  • Lease Agreement –  We need to see a full copy (all pages and addendum’s) of your lease agreement.  An expired lease agreement also works if you don’t have an active lease agreement.   A proposed leased is also acceptable.
  • Order for Payment –  Some documentation (bank statement, order for payment, letter agreement, etc) showing the amount you were paid in total and per acre when you signed your lease agreement.
  • Existing Offers –  Please provide us with your best offer in writing.

Please see our required documents to list page with more information about the necessary documentation as well as example documents.
