I am EB3 - Dec 2004 filer and there is no hope for few years that my date get current. i have filed another GC through my sister in May 2006 and that F4 category is moving quicker and expecting my priority date will be current in 5 years through my sister.

i have bought 2 Family house in Jersey City. now for my kids education we thought to move to India for 4 to 5 years until we get call for GC though my sister.
we are going to rent house - it's multi family near NYC. my landloard is willing to take care of it in our absence.

my Q is can i get B1 (Visitor visa) for 10 years , if we show that we have property in US and we may need to visit just to take check it ??
should we inform immigration officer about GC filed though my sister to assure that we will not stay in US longer, to get B1 visa?
can we get visitor visa before leaving USA? i mean convert from H1 to B1 for multi year?
