Sell mineral rights using the shotgun approach

When mineral owners want to sell mineral rights they commonly take the shotgun approach.  What mineral owners don’t realize is that the shotgun approach to sell mineral rights is not your best option.    This free guide will show you how to avoid the shotgun approach and sell mineral rights for maximum value.

What is the shotgun approach to sell mineral rights?

The shotgun approach to selling mineral rights is when you contact multiple buyers on your own hoping to get the best possible price.

If you’re like most mineral owners you like to do things yourself.  You are happy to spend time figuring out the right way to get something done.  You take pride in getting things done the right way.   When it comes to selling mineral rights you treat it like anything else.  You spend some time figuring out the right way to get it done and you make it happen.

What many mineral owners don’t know is that the shotgun approach to selling mineral rights is literally shooting yourself in the foot!

Avoid the shotgun approach to selling mineral rights

The reason you should avoid the shotgun approach to selling mineral rights is simple.  You will make less money.

It seems counter intuitive at first.  Doing something yourself almost always yields the best results right?  When it comes to selling mineral rights you will end up selling far below market value when you do it on your own.  The reason is that you simply can’t contact enough buyers to get a fair price.

If you spent time reaching out to 10 buyers, you would be contacting less than 1% of the qualified buyers you could reach by selling mineral rights at US Mineral Exchange.  Most mineral owners end up selling after contacting less than 3 buyers. Yikes!
