Default Expat Contract vs. Local

We might have an opportunity to move back to the states.

I am American/husband French

we don't have details yet but we know there are 2 offers coming
- a 2 year expat contract
- local contract

is it possible to accept the expat contract and then convert to a local?

We would like to settle in the US (husband has a green card already).

Is it possible to buy a home in the US while on an Expat contract?

Would the salary be lower on a Expat contract due to other perks (Private Schools, Housing, Transport etc...) vs Local Contract?

We have not seen the numbers yet but anxious and wondering if it's possible to go for the expat then convert to local. OR do you HAVE to move back?

Job in question is in France but team is being moved to the US therefore that job should be a US position after the expat contract is up.

Thanks for the help
