Offer to Sell Royalties

Received an offer to sell royalties?  If so, you are probably wondering whether the offer is a fair one.   At US Mineral Exchange, our goal is help mineral owners make an informed decision.  If you have an offer to sell royalties, don’t sell until you have read this free guide.   We’ll explain everything you need to know about an offer to sell royalties including how to maximize the value.

How to Sell Royalties for Maximum Value

Once you have an offer to sell royalties in hand, it’s easy to simply sign on the dotted line and call it a day.  Many mineral owners make the mistake of selling royalties far below market value.    When you get a single offer to sell royalties an quickly accept it, you may never know if you could have received significantly more money.   To truly maximize the value of oil and gas royalties you need to get your property in front of a large audience of buyers.

The reason it’s so important to get your property in front of a lot of buyers is because it creates competition for your royalties.   With any offer to sell royalties, you want to see if there are other buyers out there who are willing to pay more.   In our experience, we are able to locate buyer willing to make a better offer for your royalties the vast majority of the time.    Don’t accept the first offer to sell royalties and leave thousands of dollars on the table that should go in your pocket!

When you list your property at US Mineral Exchange, we get your property in front of our huge network of royalty buyers.  We have thousands of buyers across the United States who visit our website looking for royalties to purchase.   If you want to get multiple offers to sell royalties, list your property with us and find out what the market is really willing to pay.   Most mineral owners get 4 to 6 offers within just a couple weeks of listing their royalties for sale.

How to estimate the value of oil and gas royalties

If you have an offer to sell royalties, the first step is to get a rough idea of whether the offer is fair.   Unlike the housing and stock markets where there is a lot of information about value, that isn’t true for mineral rights. However, generally speaking you can expect to get anywhere from 4 years to 6 years times the average amount you receive each month.  If you want to get a quick estimate of the value of oil and gas royalties use the calculator below.  This will help you see if the offer to sell royalties is fair one.   Simply enter the average amount you receive each month in the calculator below:

Royalty Calculator


Keep in mind that the range above is just an estimate.   Any offer to sell royalties you receive may fall outside that range for a number of reasons.   If you have an offer to sell royalties that is significantly higher than the range listed above, there is a good chance you own a number of mineral acres with your royalties.   This means there is a chance that future production could make your property worth even more.

    Common Questions

    The more information you can provide about your property the better!  We can give you a better idea about the value of selling mineral rights if you provide more information.  The most important thing we need is for you to answer the questions and provide your state and county.

    If you have the required documents to list, providing those is extremely helpful!

    Absolutely not!  When you inquire at US Mineral Exchange we will not be putting any pressure on you to sell.  We will help answer any questions you have whether you are interested in selling or not.

    We typically respond to inquiries in less than 12 hours and usually within hours of submitting the contact form. At US Mineral Exchange our goal is to be available to mineral owners as a resource so we pride ourselves on quickly replying and communicating with mineral owners.

    At US Mineral Exchange, we take privacy very seriously. We will NEVER sell your information or use it without your consent. When you send us documentation or tell us about your property, that information does not go outside our company without your consent. Even when you list a property for sale on our website, we strictly control who has access to the information about your listing so that only legitimate buyers will be able to see property details.

    Many mineral owners make the mistake of getting an offer and quickly selling.   They then accept an offer far below market value because they felt pressure to sell.   There is nearly always a better price available.

    Imagine you were selling a home.  Would you get the best price from a random person who walks up and makes you an offer?  No way!  Now imagine you list the home on the MLS where thousands of potential buyers know your house is for sale.   The key to getting the best price is competition.  Our guide to selling mineral rights explains everything.

    The reason that so many mineral owners decide to sell mineral rights at US Mineral Exchange is access to our large network of mineral rights buyers. Our goal is to help you get top dollar for selling mineral rights by getting your property in front of a huge audience of buyers. This allows buyers to compete against one another which ensures you get fair market value for selling mineral rights.

    There are absolutely no cost to list your property.  When you locate a buyer by listing your property with us, we are paid a commission directly by the buyers closing agent. This means you never have any out of pocket expenses ever.  We only get paid if we can get you a better price than the current offer you have in hand.

    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 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 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 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!

    US Mineral has been very helpful, leading us through all the steps in selling two different royalties. We gave them plenty of problems to work us through and they were always more than helpful and kind.

    My husband William Ware acquired Mineral Rights through his late Grandmother. We worked with Terra at US Mineral Exchange to begin the decisions to sell our rights. She responded to every question, even ones that to her were probably silly, she did it professionally and with kindness. When it came time to decide if we wanted to take the offer we received from a buyer, she didn't pressure us but gave us educated advise. I can't recommend this company enough!read more
