Sell your home quickly for cash with an experienced real estate team

Avoid financial ‘monsters’ lurking in the deep seas of real estate and high finance

Wrestling with banks, the IRS, the county tax collector, expensive repairs, pre-foreclosure, divorce, your HOA, your tenants, debt, or an unwanted inheritance — any one of these can feel scary. I started Shark Fin Properties to help people just like you quickly exit an unwanted house, cash in hand.

Ken Ott - Shark Fin - Real EstateI’m Ken, principal at Shark Fin Properties and a San Francisco Bay Area native. The Shark Fin Team helps people quickly sell their property for the best possible all-cash offer. Our vision is to develop beautiful, high quality of life neighborhoods throughout California. Our team and partners flip 30+ homes per year in the Bay Area so we have access to a deep bench of experienced contractors, amazing real estate agents, attorneys, and more. I’m a life-long entrepreneur and former tech company worker, account manager, teacher, and massage therapist. 

We help homeowners

Just because you are facing financial challenges with your home, it doesn’t mean that you will automatically lose your home and be out on the street. You don’t have to renovate or repair your house to sell it to Shark Fin either. Plus, you can sell your home in as little as a few days and avoid the whole open house circus if you need cash, quickly and quietly. In real estate there are often simple solutions to financial and other issues. Value provided for value received.

Real estate challenges we help people overcome:

  • Selling homes quickly for cash – any house, any condition, any reason; we buy houses cash all over the San Francisco bay area
  • Facing foreclosure?  late mortgage payments, temporary job loss, tax liens; 
  • The passing of a loved one or inherited property – settling estates and probate
  • House needs repairs? asbestos, mold, dry rot, cracked foundations, fire, termites…
  • Need to downsize? Get cash for your keys
  • Tired of being a landlord? We can take over your landlord responsibilities to make your life easier, and you can relax on the beach anywhere in the world!
  • Divorce?  We’ve been there and know it’s not easy.  However, it just means the next chapter of your amazing life is about to begin!
  • Just want to cash out and travel the world?  We can offer you cash for your property!

Why should I work with Shark Fin Properties?

We are real estate investors, not agents. 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 can refer you to rockstar agents who will sell your house for top dollar.  This takes longer than working with a cash investor of course.

If you need to sell quickly, Shark Fin Properties offers you:

  • All cash offer within 24-48 hours
  • Cash wire transfer to your bank, as early as 7 days from today (speed!)
  • No real estate agent fees (5-6%)
  • No open house embarrassment (nosy neighbors)
  • No repairs (save money, time)
  • 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 house buying criteria: nasty, smelly, ugly, cat pee houses.

We also consider nicer properties.
