Selling Your Mineral Rights
Not sure if you’re ready to sell? We can help!
There are many different reasons to sell your mineral rights - and each seller is different. You might want cash to improve your home, pay off debt, finance your children's education or realize the cash value of your assets today. You'll receive a lump sum upfront, rather than the traditional smaller monthly royalty payments paid over a long period of time.

Our partnership with a well-funded, diversified capital source ensures that we have the resources to move quickly to close your transaction, whether you’re selling a small or large asset. We believe Momentum’s technical assessment of the productivity of your resources will determine a competitive price for your mineral rights and royalties.
Benefits of Selling Mineral Rights
Regardless of where you live, a common dream is to own land. People often buy real estate and build structures to live in or rent out. Rarely do landowners think of what’s under the surface, and they end up missing out on significant financial opportunities.
Here are some different types of mineral rights & royalty sellers:
- University Endowments
- Trusts: Charitable & Estate
- Mineral Management Companies
- Land Brokers
- Timber Companies
You must report and pay taxes on royalty payments every year. By selling, you’ll simplify your tax returns because you no longer have that yearly burden. Also, you can potentially benefit from long-term capital gains tax rates.
Unplanned events like vehicular accidents, on-the-job incidents, and previously undiagnosed health issues can result in long-term or expensive hospital visits. Treatment bills can mount, and if you’re unable to pay, collection calls may begin. A lump-sum payment can be used for medical care while keeping you financially stable.
By selling mineral rights, you no longer have to keep up with paperwork like depletion schedules, division order files, and tax records. It also reduces the amount of work involved in estate planning. Liquidating mineral rights enables you to distribute cash instead of dealing with the headache of dividing property.
Reduced financial risk
Landowners who lease mineral rights to operators have increased exposure to risk. Monthly royalty checks are at the mercy of unpredictable and continually changing market conditions. Also, mechanical or operational problems with production equipment can impact the amount of oil and gas produced. By selling mineral rights for a lump sum, these pitfalls are avoided.
Cashing in mineral rights frees you to retire and enjoy your golden years. You can spend time with loved ones, travel, and practice new hobbies.
