Why is my condo now an investment property?I own a condo in DC and moved 5 months to Europe to work for the Department of State. Our housing in Europe is free (well, the government pays for it), and I rented our condo. I am trying to refinance, but many lenders say I now have an investment property. Well, I rented if out as it made no sense to leave it vacant while I am in Euorpe, but when I return in 2 years, we will move back into our condo. Is this something we are stuck with for two years - investment property category - and when we return it goes back to being a primary residence?March 31 2012 - U Street Corridor00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
