Hi there, we bought our first home as our primary residence about 3 months back in North Carolina while we were still renting in Maryland. Bank asked for a letter from my employer stating my moving to NC would not affect my job/income and my employer provided them as often in our line of work we work remotely or on-site or even travel if needed.When i got hired for this new IT project, i was told that i would be working remotely but after joining, i was asked to work strictly on site from the North Carolina office due to contract issues.Now my work is 4 hours from the house we bought. I really like the house and we bought new furniture and decorated the house hoping we would finally move here one day.My question is: can i rent this house so i can cover for the mortgage? Can i turn it into vacation rental as it's in Smokey mountain area? Would my bank default me when they find out about vacation rental insurance policy? Do i have to refinance it to use it as vacation rental? I researched the area and it's very hard to find a long term tenants where the house is, I may find some short term weekly or nightly rentals during summer thru various vacation rental websites. I really don't want to sell the house. Can anyone advise me what to do it this situation and what are my options?Many thanks for your kind advice,Jamison
