"wasn't my selection and purchase a lot less risky because I have practically no money in the deal?"

Well, that all depends. On the one hand, you had only a little money in the deal. On the other hand, you could have lost it all.

In the stock market, it is very unusual, at least for those who pay attention, to lose everything. In this deal, you could have lost everything you put into it, and most likely damaged your credit if there had been a foreclosure.

Again, you did your homework, and made a good choice.
