Minerals in the hottest shale plays are more valuable than those in older fields with conventional wells.
Producing minerals are generally worth more than non-producing minerals because they are generating revenue.
When oil and gas prices drop, revenue drops, and sometimes operators are unable to continue operations..
Highly productive wells (and off-set wells) can increase the value of your minerals.
Favorable lease terms (such as a 25% royalty) favorably impact the value of the leased minerals.
A small number of operators are unethical, and their reputation automatically devalues your minerals.
Leases may be fully developed or there may be room to drill additional wells and take advantage of the initial production.

With the price of oil declining and operators practically giving gas away, I decided to sell before the bottom falls out.J. Cruz
I am on a fixed income, and the sale of these minerals will help me secure stable housing. My children will be okay if even if they don't inherit these minerals.S. Owens
My oil wells have been producing for decades and the reserves are almost depleted. Once the wells are plugged, the value will be significantly lower. I'd rather cash out now.R. Robertson
I inherited mineral rights, but don't want to be involved with fracking and fossil fuels. I would prefer to support renewable energy and do my part to reverse climate change.P. Harris
