You are required to sign a statement attesting to the fact that you will occupy the home as the home owner.
Your buyer's agent should be answering these questions for you. If you are not yet working with a buyer's agent, talk to a few agents and find one you feel comfortable with and settle down with one. we all have the same data base of properties - you want to work with an agent that is representing your interests. the best part is typically, the seller pays realtor commissions so working with a buyer's agent doesnt cost you extra.
One caveat, with really cheap houses (less than $50,000) some agents (myself included) have started asking for buyers agreements that stipulate a minimum commission. If the seller doesnt pay a certain commission, then the buyer agrees to make up the difference.
best wishes and happy house hunting!
With Homepath offers is you are purchasing as an owner occupant you and your agent will need to sign an affadavit stating that you are intending to purchase the home as a primary residence. And I think you have some time to move in.
