    Why should I work with Shark Fin Properties?

    We are local bay area investors, not pricey real estate agents or out-of-state 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 selectively work with the 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 Union City 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
