  • Why should I sell to San Saba Royalty?
    • You will find our offers to be amongst the most competitive in the marketplace. Over the past decade, we have developed a reputation for honoring the offers that we make. The focus and dedication of our team make for an efficient, stress-free closing process.

  • Can I sell a portion of my mineral or royalty interests?
    • Yes, this can often be the best of both worlds for sellers. Liquidating a portion of your assets can offer a quick cash solution, while maintaining a monthly cash flow.

  • If I haven’t received an offer for my minerals or royalties, does that mean you aren’t interested?
    • Absolutely not. We are interested in any and all opportunities to acquire minerals and royalties. Contact us and we can let you know what information we need to make an offer on your interests.

  • How long does the process take?
    • The process between accepting an offer and receiving your lump sum payment takes an average of 30-45 days. However, this timeline can be expedited by providing title documents, royalty check stubs, etc. Contact us to learn exactly what documents are needed and how to begin the process of divesting your interests.

  • In the offer I received from San Saba Royalty, what does it mean in the conveyance when it says “the sum of Ten Dollars ($10) and other good and valuable consideration”?
    • The offer that San Saba Royalty is actually making is the offer shown in the draft and offer letter. In the state of Texas, it is common practice to state on the conveyance ‘Ten Dollars ($10) and other good and valuable consideration’ solely for privacy reasons. Because the mineral and royalty conveyance will be filed of record in the county courthouse, many sellers and buyers would prefer to keep the actual transaction price outside of the public domain.

  • I have received an offer in the mail, how firm is this offer?
    • We base our initial offers off of the size of the unit your interest falls in and the net revenue interest (sometimes called decimal interest) you are being paid on said unit. Our offer also assumes your interest covers all depths and is not a ’term’ interest (an interest that expires at a given time). We gather this information from publicly available data. It is not our intention to run a ‘bait-and-switch’ scheme of sending out larger offers than we are actually willing to pay like so many other companies. We would only ever reduce the price we are willing to pay from what we initially offered for one of two reasons: if you have sold all or part of your interest in the past year or if the publicly available data we base our assumptions off of prove to be incorrect after further due diligence.
