Diference between Primary and Secondary home?I work overseas and I was told that since I don't work or leave in the United States I could not buy a house as a primary home (that's were I will be living when I move back home) and that it has to be purchased as a secondary home . Is that true? and what is the difference between buying a house as primary and buying a house as a secondary home? would that hurt me in the future?
