    Why should I work with Shark Fin Properties?

    We are real estate investors actually based in San Jose, not agents or out-of-town investors. If you have months or half a year to list your home for sale or want top dollar for a home you’ve fully remodeled, please use a real estate agent. We work with the South Bay’s best Realtors® and will refer you to rockstar agents who can sell your house for top dollar.  This takes longer than working with an all-cash investor of course.

    Also, if your house is fixed up already, there’s not much value for us to add, so we might not be your people. 

    If you need to sell your San Jose home quickly, Shark Fin Properties offers you:

    • All cash offer within 24-48 hours
    • Cash wire transfer to your bank, as soon as 7 days from today (speed!)
    • No real estate agent fees (save 5-6%)
    • No open house embarrassment (nosy people)
    • No repairs (save money, time, move on)
    • No signs (privacy)
    • No appraisals (speed)
    • No costly delays (speed)
    • No closing costs (save money)
    • No fees charged to you – if there are any miscellaneous fees necessary to purchase your house, they are deducted from your cash offer

    Our San Jose, CA house buying criteria: nasty, smelly, ugly, cat/dog pee houses.

    We also consider nicer properties.
