How to Maximize Value for Oil and Gas Royalties

Let’s take a quick break from oil and gas royalties and talk about home ownership.  Why? Many people are familiar with buyer and selling a home. When you sell a home, what’s the first thing you do?  You have to decide if you’re going to sell the house on your own or hire a realtor to sell the house for you. Why would you hire a realtor to sell the house?  There are two main reasons:

1 – Time
2 – Marketing Exposure

If you hire a realtor, that realtor already knows everything that needs to happen to get your property ready for sale.  From taking picture, to brochures, to open houses, a realtor will make sure that your property is shown at it’s best.   This means buyers will see a great property and want to make an offer.   The realtor ends up saving you a significant amount of time.  You don’t have to put all of this information together yourself.

Just as important, a real estate agent knows how to get your property in front of the buyers.  They will work with their network of real estate agents, and also list your home on the MLS to get you the highest price.

Why is all this important to mineral rights?

Because selling mineral rights and royalties is no different.  You need to get your property in front of a large network of buyers who will compete against each other to pay the highest price.  You want your property to get maximum exposure so you can put maximum dollars in your pocket!  How do you do this?
