My employer pays for my relocation and travel expenses, what they don't pay are my rent expenses while I am abroad for periods longer than 1 month, just as I doubt your employer pays your rent or mortgage if they require you to relocate.

If you don't have enough in reserves to pay the costs of your primary residence while you are temporarily relocated, without having to try to rent out you home long distance for a short term, you are not ready to buy a house as your primary residence.
