Howard, TX

Rated 5 out of 5

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.

By listing our mineral interests with Texas Royalty Brokers, my husband and I received an offer more than 50% higher than the best offer we received in the mail. And, the expert guidance we received from Eric Winegar through the entire process was just as important.

Eric established value, listed the property, discussed options, vetted and coordinated paperwork, always provided thoughtful and knowledgeable guidance, clearly answered our many questions, and looked after our interests, keeping us informed every step along the way. We are so glad that we listed our property with Texas Royalty Brokers.

Our family was on the fence about selling mineral rights until we got a really high offer in the mail. We reached out to see if the offer was a fair one. Within just minutes the company responded and walked us through the value of the mineral rights. We decided to list the mineral rights to see if there was a better offer. Sure enough, we got a bid that was even higher. I can’t thank Eric and the team at Texas Royalty enough for helping our family with the sale of these mineral rights. We are truly thankful.

We got an offer from [redacted] in the mail. I knew this offer was a low ball offer, but we hadn’t really thought about selling until the offer came in. My wife and I didn’t want to be greedy, but we also wanted to sell for the best price we could find. I reached out to a few other buyers and then decided to list this at Texas Royalty Brokers. It was the best decision we could have made. We ended up walking away with substantially more money.

The price I received after listing at Texas Royalty Brokers was shocking. I had multiple offers to sell, but I was not sure who to trust. I decided to list and let them walk me through the process. Our family was less concerned about the price and more concerned about not being taken advantage of. We ended up selling for over $600,000 more than the offers we were receiving. On top of that, they walk us through the sales process making sure we understood everything each step of the way. These guys are the real deal and our family is very grateful we found this company.

Listing Mineral Rights for Sale

When we list mineral rights for sale at Texas Royalty Brokers, we want to attract maximum attention from mineral buyers.  The more attention your listing gets, the higher the bids will be.

Gathering the required documentation is the most important step to ensure you sell for the best price.

Gathering Documentation

Imagine you were selling a home.  If you were list your property on Zillow and include no photos and no square footage, would you expect to attract a lot of buyers?  No way!

Imagine you were selling a car.  If you listed your car on Autotrader but included no photos and no mileage, would you expect to attract buyers?  No chance!

We see mineral owners make the same mistake over and over again.  They want to sell mineral rights without providing any information about what they actually own.  It’s not uncommon for a mineral owner to say “just look it up” when we request documentation.  The documentation that we request is not public information.

Here is the documentation we require to list:

  • Check Stubs: The bare minimum documentation that we require to list mineral rights is your last 3 months of check stub details.  Each time you get paid royalty income a check stub is generated that shows details about the payment.  These details include information like the wells, volume of oil and gas, your ownership interest, etc..  If you get direct deposit, there is a way to view these check stubs online.  You may need to contact your operator (company who pays you) to ask for copies of your check stub details.   Note:  There is no substitute for check stubs.  Your 1099, a summary from the operator, or other documents will not work.
  • Offers:  If you have an existing offer to sell mineral rights that is current (within the last 60 days) and in writing, please provide us with this offer.  This offer will be confidential and never shared with mineral buyers.  Providing us with your written offer does two things:
    • 1.  It allows us to set a more accurate starting bid price based on current market offers.
    • 2.  We do not get paid unless we help you secure a better price!  By providing us with your written offer, you set the floor.  We have to perform and provide you with a better offer.

Here is the documentation that helpful but is not required to list:

  • Lease Agreement: The lease agreement is extremely helpful for mineral buyers.  The lease agreement is typically 2 to 4 pages long and will specify the lease royalty rate.  In Texas, this could be anything from 12.5% to 25%.  The lease agreement will tell mineral buyers a lot of important information.
  • Mineral Deed:  If you have a mineral deed that shows how you acquired the ownership, this is helpful.
  • 1099:  If you have the previous years’ 1099 that shows your total royalty income from the previous year, please provide it.
  • Title:  If you have title work that shows how many acres you own, this is extremely helpful for mineral buyers.

Gathering documentation is a pain!  We get it!

If you already have an offer in hand, it may be tempting to just take the offer to sell mineral rights in Texas.  Don’t do it!  You will be selling below market value.

By taking just a few minutes of your time to gather the required documents to list, you’ll end up making thousands of extra dollars.  Often, hundreds of thousands of extra dollars.

Free Consultation

Once you have gathered your check stub details, fill out the free consultation form.  Include as much information as you can and upload documentation if possible.  This will allow us to research your mineral rights before we discuss with you.

Note:  It is not required to provide your check stubs / offers for a free consultation, but it is very helpful.

Once you fill out the free consultation form, one of our team members will quickly be in touch.  During the call we’ll discuss a few items with you so that we can accurately market your mineral rights and ensure maximum value.   Each call depends on the client and their mineral rights, but in general we discuss the following topics with you:

  • Market Update:  We will go over where the market currently is.  We’ll let you know what kind of demand we’re seeing from buyers and help you weigh whether now is a good or bad time to sell.
  • Location Expectations:  We’ll discuss the specific county where your mineral rights are located.  If you have provided your check stubs up front, we’ll tell you what’s going on with your specific acreage and what’s going on in the immediately surrounding area.
  • Offers: We’ll discuss any existing offers you have on the table.  We’ll review these offers for you and point out any red flags or areas of concern.
  • Pricing:  Based on the area, your royalty income, and the potential upside, we’ll discuss pricing the mineral rights.  Pricing will depend on many factors such as how quickly you need to sell, what offers you have on the table, etc..  Note that when we list mineral rights, the listing price is a starting bid.  You do not agree to sell at this price and this is simply a starting point for negotiations!
  • Exclusivity:  We require exclusivity for all of our listings.  Exclusivity is what allows us to maximize value for clients.   Our mineral buyers know that they won’t see this deal anywhere else.  By consistently listing high quality deals, it attracts the best buyers who pay the best prices.

Please keep in mind that each consultation is free and there is no obligation and no pressure to move forward.  A consultation is simply a discussion about your mineral rights.

It’s important to explore your options when selling mineral rights and that is what this call is for.  We’ll help you understand our company, our process, and our focus on helping you maximize value when selling mineral rights in Texas.

Once the consultation is complete, we’ll communicate the next steps if you want to move forward.  We’ll provide you with a copy of our listing agreement, let you know what documentation we still need, and ensure that the starting bid price is confirmed.

Listing Setup and Activation

If you decide you want to move forward, our team will ensure we have everything we need.  This includes:

  • Documentation
  • Signed Listing Agreement
  • Starting Bid Price

Once we have these items, our team will prepare your listing for activation.  This includes putting together maps of the acreage, cleaning and preparing your documentation, and setting up the listing in our system.  Once the listing is setup, our team will activate it and immediately begin marketing your mineral rights for sale in Texas.
