There are three types of occupancy for a residential property; primary, secondary (vacation) and investment.

Primary and secondary will usually share similar rates, however for conforming loans you can expect to pay approximately .5% more for an investment property.

If you need specifics for your situation, please let me know.

Yes, especially if you are a first time homebuyer.
