Will it be considered a secondary residence/2nd home loan or an investment property loan even if it will be our first home within months? This will be our primary residence we just won't be able to live in it immediately and we'd like to maximize our situation.

If we can't rent it out, can we still get an FHA or conventional loan if we have a job in another state?
