Historically, there has been a disconnect between energy companies and landowners regarding the valuation of land resources. On one hand, landowners do not know what their mineral, solar, wind, and other property rights are worth. They do not have access to the resources required to value their asset, so they are not willing to sell or lease. On the other hand, buyers spend too much time and money to discover a deal, value it, negotiate, and close.
LandGate has stepped in to resolve this market inefficiency by digitizing the valuation and purchase-sale process of mineral properties and other land resources. Founded in 2016, LandGate is an open marketplace that provides free listings of property rights assets, appraisals, free data intelligence, and paid subscriptions to access and value deals faster.
