My husband and I are looking to relocate to Oklahoma from California and we are considering the Sulhpur area. I am a teacher and he is in the oil field. He has been in Oklahoma a few months already and the kids and I will be following this summer. He found land to build a house on in Sulphur. I am hoping to get information about the area. I would love to hear both the negative AND the positive on the area. Thanks!

At least Sulphur is big enough to have a Wal-Mart.

We moved to small town outside of OKC.

Land does not mean you have a builder and mineral rights do not generally come with the land. Do you know about road access, utilities, ...? Sorry - been there

Employment - contact local and county education system.

If it's just a vacant town lot as in my past case, it shouldn't be all that complicated. If land already bought, it's too late to bring up mineral rights. Back when I asked about mineral rights on my vacant lot, I was told they weren't included. If there is no oil well nearby, you're probably not missing out on anything. A home builder will take care of a lot of matters.

Culturally, it will be world's away from Cali.

If you're up for the mix of Southwest and Southern lifestyle then c'mon and Welcome to the Great State of Oklahoma! (All transplants have to learn the State song: https://youtu.be/ZbrnXl2gO_k) :-)

Can't help you much, but I will say my family does enjoy visiting Sulphur and camping in the Chickasaw National Recreation area/Lake of the Arbuckles.

You're not going to get rich off mineral rights anyway. Most of the oil wells are very low producing. And there is a LOT of stealing going on, meaning people come and take the oil and never pay the landowner.
