10/29/2017: Mars Bank’s Proper Quoted on National Website

Shawn Proper, Senior Vice President Mortgage and Consumer Lending at Mars Bank was recently quoted in an article on Lending Tree. The article focused on how to fund a down payment. Proper was asked about using a personal loan towards a down payment, which he cautioned against because it affects the amount of debt vs. income which could lower the amount of the mortgage. 

Proper explained alternative ways to fund a down payment, including how gifts can be used and available grants for first time homebuyers.
