Why Sell?

GUARANTEED CASH TODAY

Energy commodities are extremely volatile, causing royalty payments to be unpredictable. If you own producing royalties, we will pay you many years of estimated future royalties up-front. If your property is not producing, we'll give you substantial cash for your mineral rights today.

INVESTMENT DIVERSIFICATION

Selling your mineral or royalty interest can free up cash to fund a new business venture or to diversify your investments with other opportunities. A less diversified investment portfolio inherently has more risk and is more subject to market volatility.

LUMP SUM CASH PAYMENT

Put a lump sum cash payment to work for you. Our clients have used this money to fund retirement, pay for a child's education or to pay off mortgages and live debt free. Slaton's larger lump sum payments can have a bigger impact on your major purchases or life events.

ESTATE SETTLEMENT

Dividing up small mineral interests among heirs can create unnecessary stress for family members. Selling the minerals allows the Estate to divide up the cash now, avoiding the headaches and potential disputes.

NO MORE MANAGEMENT

Royalty checks can create work. Keeping up with your checks and documentation can sometimes be a nightmare. Operators are known to take advantage of royalty owners and royalties can complicate taxes, creating a lot more paperwork.

TAX ADVANTAGES

Royalty payments are typically taxed as regular income and are subject to your income tax bracket percentage. Selling minerals can generate more favorable capital gains tax treatment, which in many cases reduces income taxes.
