In Miami, CBS 4’s Your Money Team covered reverse mortgages earlier this week and set up a dedicated “Phone Bank” devoted entirely to the subject due to the overwhelming interest from viewers.
The segment features Myrtle Robinson, who decided to use a reverse mortgage to keep up with her bills. Robinson explained, "When I learned about all it had to offer, I thought, ‘this is for me””.
Robinson says her reverse mortgage is working out well for her and added "It’s like a load off my shoulders and after hearing about it, you’re grateful."
After the backlash from the Consumer Reports “investigation” it’s nice to see reverse mortgages getting some positive local media coverage.
