If your job can document that you're able to work from home and from time to time fly to NY in occasion, you should be able to finance it as your primary residence. But if your employment demands that you spend 51% or more of your time in NY, you might run into an issue and it may result in you having to purchase this home as a second home. I suggest you meet with a Loan Officer and go over all the details.
If you need someone to help you, I am always available to meet with you here in NY and help you finance in GA. Good luck!
