Mortgage is the biggest financial commitment for most people around the world. Unless you are an investor or run a midsize to large business, you are unlikely to make any investment that is dearer than your mortgage.

While it is not considered to be a risky investment, there are risks associated with it. You would be making a down payment, which could be all your savings or a major chunk of it. You would be committing to repaying the mortgage, every month for fifteen, twenty, twenty-five or perhaps thirty years. That could be seen as a lifelong commitment. You can always walk out of the mortgage and that would mean you would be moving out of your home. That is why you should try to mitigate mortgage risk as much as you can.
