I engaged Texas Royalty Brokers to market my mineral interest after I received an unsolicited offer. They got me almost 2x the original offer, and they were professional and transparent through the entire process. Definitely plan to use them again.

After several months of researching the process of selling mineral rights, as well as researching several land/mineral brokers, I filled out the contact form for Texas Royalty Brokers. I received a reply from Eric Winegar almost immediately. From the start, Eric was easy to work with and I always felt that he was truly working with my best in mind. Throughout our numerous emails and phone calls, he was always courteous and professional and answered every question I asked. Some more than once! I was provided with all the drilling maps and financial information he used to determine the listing price and future drilling potential.

Once I accepted an offer, he handled all of the paperwork and walked me through every part of the process. And, when we ran into a snag (which he had prepared me to expect) and I started to question my decision to sell, he was so respectful of my indecision and provided me with all the information I needed to reassure myself that I was making the right decision. I can’t thank him enough. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Texas Royalty Brokers to anyone interested in selling their mineral interests.

16 years after inheriting Howard County mineral rights, and recently receiving increasing unsolicited purchase offers, we made the decision to sell. After thoroughly researching brokerage firms we decided to contact Texas Royalty Brokers which was a highly beneficial move. Eric could not have been easier to work with and we felt a strong fiduciary relationship throughout the entire process. Numerous phone calls and discussions were handled in a prompt, professional manner with precise explanations and valuable information offered, all delivered in a stress free environment. We feel that Eric went above and beyond our expectations and was a significant factor in our successful sell. We highly recommend Texas Royalty Brokers and Eric Winegar and would not hesitate to work with them in any future endeavors.

Cost to list at Texas Royalty Brokers

At Texas Royalty Brokers, we have one goal. To help mineral owners in Texas sell for the highest possible price.

The most important decision you can make when selling mineral rights is picking the right mineral rights broker.  The right broker is going to guide you through the process.  A great mineral rights broker will help you avoid the common mistakes that mineral owners make and help you sell for the highest possible price.

An important part of picking the right mineral rights broker is commission cost.  While mineral buyers will pay the commission, it is ultimately still a cost in the transaction.

At Texas Royalty Brokers we want to be 100% clear and transparent about exactly what it costs to use our service.

Cost to List

There is no cost to list your mineral rights at Texas Royalty Brokers.  We do not charge any fees at all to list your mineral rights on our platform.

Performance Based Commission

Our company is set up based on a performance based commission.  What this means is that we don’t make a penny unless we help you get a higher price.

Nearly every mineral owner who lists with us has an offer in hand.  We don’t get paid unless we can help you get a higher price.

If you accept an offer after listing with Texas Royalty Brokers, we are paid a 5% commission by the mineral buyer.

Keep the following in mind:

  • We nearly always help mineral owners get 10% to 50% higher prices after our 5% commission is taken into account
  • We don’t get paid unless we help you get a higher price than your existing offer
  • Our commission can’t cause you to get less than your existing offer
  • You are never going to be forced to accept an offer when you list with our company

Imagine you were selling a home.  Would a real estate agent allow you to find offers on your own, then agree to only get paid if they can find you a higher price?  Not a chance!

The reason we are able to do this is simple.  Competition.

When you list mineral rights at Texas Royalty Brokers we know that getting your mineral rights in front of thousands of buyers will lead to better prices.  While we get a 5% commission, you’re going to walk away with substantially more money after listing.

Is a Mineral Rights Broker worth it?

When deciding whether to sell mineral right in Texas on your own or use a broker, the cost to use a broker is often the deciding factor.

A lot of mineral owners fall into the same trap.  They assume that they can easily find offers on their own and get the best price.

Finding offers on high quality properties is easy.  Getting the best price is the hard part.  There are so many mineral owners who sell below market value because they are convinced they can find a good deal.

Most mineral owners have an offer in hand.  When mineral owners list at Texas Royalty Brokers, we typically help them get 10% to 50% higher offers after our commission is taken into account. Competition is key.

More importantly, at Texas Royalty Brokers we don’t get paid a commission unless we can help you find a higher price.  If you have an offer in hand and we can’t find you a higher price, you owe us nothing.  This makes listing at Texas Royalty Brokers a risk free way to ensure you have the best offer in hand.

“Free” Mineral Brokers

It’s important to understand that any broker or individual who is helping you sell mineral rights is getting paid.  No one does this for free.

If a mineral broker claims they are “free” this simply means they aren’t telling you their commission rate.  This is bad.

When a broker says they are “Free” they will present offers to you net of their commission.  The problem is that their commission could be anything.  Let’s say you have an offer for $4,000/acre.  They find a buyer who will pay $4,250/acre.  Great, you’re making more money!  The issue is that the mineral buyer is actually paying $4,750/acre.  This means the broker just made a 10.5% commission.

This is extremely common in this industry.  Many brokers will claim to be free.  All this allows them to do is hide their commission rate, and then make a much higher commission.

Exclusive Listings

At Texas Royalty Brokers, our goal is full transparency.

While not a “cost”, it’s important to understand that our company requires exclusivity to list.  This means that our company has the exclusive right to market your property.

Why do we require exclusivity?

There are three important reasons:

1. Quality:  When you list exclusively, it shows mineral buyers that you are serious about selling.  A lot of brokers will list anything.  These low quality listings almost never result in a sale.  Mineral buyers quickly figure out they are wasting time and ignore those brokers. At Texas Royalty Brokers we require exclusivity to ensure you’re serious about selling.  In turn, this gives mineral buyers the confidence to invest time evaluating your ownership and putting together a strong offer.

2. Resources:  Our company spends significant time and resources on each listing.  We don’t just send out an email and hope for the best.  We actively market your mineral rights.  Without exclusivity, we couldn’t commit those resources to your listing.

3. Pricing:  With a focus on high quality listings that appeal to mineral buyers and actively marketing your mineral rights, our company will ensure you sell for the best price.

While we do require exclusivity to list, we only get paid if we find you a higher offer.  You can always accept your original offer and owe us nothing even though we require exclusivity to list.

Questions or concerns?
