CatherineCoy asks us to identify the risk:

Well, just like a stock portfolio, I haven't really made the money yet since I haven't sold them, but wasn't my selection and purchase a lot less risky because I have practically no money in the deal? How do you perceive the risk?

If you had sold for a loss, you would still be liable for the deficiency. Your losses are not limited to your down payment.

Have fun,

John R.
