Blogging Tulsa Real Estate: Helping Sellers Put the Cake Back under Their Icing

Helping Sellers Put the Cake Back under Their Icing

Is anyone out there in Active Rain land offering landman services to their sellers to help them acquire the mineral rights under their land? 

I have the expertise to do this and I think it would be even more valuable than home staging and other ancillary services that we offer to get the homes sold.

It seems to me that in an era when landmen are doing "roof-top leasing" to get homeowners in subdivisions to lease out their minerals, we really owe it to our homeowners to help them to get those minerals back.

It is our generation that should be doing this.  The longer we wait to put the cake back under the icing, the harder it will be to identify the heirs of landowners who retained the mineral rights many years ago.

Are you saying that people buy houses short of the full bundle of rights?  In Florida we wouldn't have this issue.

That's exactly right.  In Oklahoma land was allotted in fee simple and then when people thought there might be oil or gas under their properties ,they "retained the mineral rights" while selling off the surface.  So when you buy a house here you may own everything from the surface to he center of the earth or you may only own "from the grass roots up."

What is worse, most homeowners are totally unaware of this concept.
