Why Sell Mineral Rights?
There are numerous reasons why people put their mineral rights up for sale. We have heard the saying “never sell your mineral rights” many times but we know that each person’s situation is unique, and we are here to assist you every step of the way. We have worked with many individuals, families, businesses, and trusts and have found the below are the most common reasons people have sold their oil and gas mineral rights.
If you are counting on your royalty money to cover tuition or education loans, cashing out in one large lump sum is the only way to ensure you’ll have it when you need it.
Health Care and/or Assisted Living
Healthcare and assisted living costs can wreak havoc on your finances. People often choose to sell their mineral rights to pay these expenses or qualify for financial aid.
A large amount of time and expense is required to probate minerals upon death. Moreover, distributing your minerals to numerous heirs dilutes their long-term value. A pizza can only be cut into so many pieces before a cash payout might be a better option.
We own interests in numerous wells in multiple states to diminish our risk. People who sell mineral rights often do so because they have all their eggs in one basket and wish to invest in other industries or ventures.
Invest in Business or Real Estate
Monthly checks received from your minerals rights may not be large enough to help you start a new business, invest in an existing one, or buy a real estate investment. A large lump sum may fulfill this need whereas the monthly cash flow does not create value for you.
Oil & gas wells are depleting assets. Production rates decline and there will never be as much in the reservoir tomorrow as there is today. Many people sell their minerals and royalties to invest in other assets before the oil dries.
