Welcome To The Cascade Team Tyler Bean!

I was born and raised in the Spokane area and currently live in Deer Park, about 15 minutes outside of Spokane. I am just getting started in the real estate business with the mentorship of James Faucett. Before getting into Real Estate, I spent 5 years teaching 2 1/2 to 4 year olds at Harvard Park Children’s Learning Center in Spokane. I love kids but have none of my own yet so I enjoy spending time with my many nieces and nephews and I also coach a 12 year old girls soccer team with my brother. I’m excited for this new journey and I’m so thankful to be a part of The Cascade Team!

Tyler will be a wonderful addition to The Cascade Team and we look forward to seeing his success!

Buying a home is, for many people, an essential part of the American dream. But for people with a checkered financial history - and a less-than-perfect credit score - it can feel like a dream that's out of their reach. But just because you don't have a perfect credit store or a pristine financial background doesn't mean you can't buy a home! While it may be a bit more challenging, you can find financing and buy the home of your dreams even if your credit score isn't quite up to the level you'd like it to be. Here are five tips for buying a house (even if you have a less-than-perfect credit score):

1. Make Sure Your Credit Report Is Accurate

If you're worried your financial past might prevent you from securing a mortgage, the first step is to go through…

Staying on top of the latest trends in home decor isn’t for everyone, but even for traditionalists, it can be fun to incorporate some new ideas. Here are five bathroom decor trends that are appearing in 2017.

  1. Geometric Patterns: Many homeowners are selecting bold patterns in geometric shapes, like chevrons, triangles, or hexagons. These patterns can add intrigue and continuity to your tile or shower curtain.
  2. Plants: Even the best-designed bathrooms can benefit from some small plants. If you have a windowless bathroom, there are some low-light options that can survive with little maintenance.
  3. Dark Colors: This can be tricky to achieve, but it comes with a big pay off. While traditional bathrooms are often painted with brighter whites and greys,

The kitchen is one area of the home that sees the most wear and tear. All the water, heat, and food spills add up quickly so it’s important to focus on quality and lasting appeal when you’re choosing materials for a kitchen remodel. Here are a few things you should avoid:

Cheap Laminate Countertops: The bottom rung of laminate is extremely susceptible to wear and tear. It can melt if you forget to place a hot pad under a pan that’s fresh out of the oven and the edges can chip off from repeated exposure to moisture and heat.

Flat Paint: A flat or matte finish is great in rooms with lower traffic, but it’s a bad idea in the kitchen where the walls are regularly exposed to splatters and spills. You need paint that can withstand an occasional heavy

Welcome To The Cascade Team Heather Morgan!

 

I am a Pacific Northwest native and real estate professional serving North Bothell and the greater Seattle area. 

My passion for real estate started at a young age as my mother was a successful real estate broker for 35 plus years.  I inherited exposure to real estate but also developed a keen aptitude stemming from my sincere interest, knowledge, experience in the industry and my desire to help others and my community.  After graduating from Central Washington University with a Business Administration degree I quickly jumped into real estate.   I purchased a personal storage business as well as my first home by the age of 21.  I have since purchased, sold and hold properties both for personal and

Buying a home—especially if it’s your first—can be a lot like losing weight in the sense that people end up doing, well, some pretty dumb stuff in the process. But while desperate dieters might waste money on “magical” weight-loss pills or silly exercise equipment (remember the shake weight?), misguided home buyers could be doing far more serious damage—like undermining their ability to purchase a house at all. Don't be one of them! The Cascade Team is here to shed light on some of the dumbest reasons people can't buy a home. The good news? These flubs are easily avoidable. Read on and beware.

1: Waiting to line up financing

Your first step in the home-buying process should be to meet with a mortgage lender to discuss your financing options.

In literally all of the markets that The Cascade Team services we have neighborhoods and developments intermixing with local coyote populations. I live in Sammamish, WA and often see them in the mornings when I run Soaring Eagle Park between 5:30 and 6:00 in the morning and a recent posting on Nextdoor Trossachs the neighborhood I live in reported a mother and 2 to 3 pups having a den in one of the many local greenbelts.

The same can be said for Doug Young and the Team in Arizona, Kent in Denver, James out in Spokane and so forth.

For the most part coyotes may prey on a small, unattended pet, but are generally scared of people. If you do run into members of the local coyote population here are a few tips to remember.
