Yes-  Buying another home in a state where you do not work is done all the time.  Those homes are considered secondary or investment properties.  Please note, neither FHA nor VA allows for financing on those properties and the down payments needed are greater.

You can buy a second home in another state using your income. The difference in rate is minimal but you do need to put at least 20% down.

It depends.  Are you buying it as your primary home or a second home?  I can put you in touch with a lender who can discuss your situation with you and let you know for sure one way or another.  Feel free to contact me.

You possibly could, if structured properly. It would most likely be considered either a second home or investment, but you probably won't qualify it as a primary residence (assuming that is what you were asking).
