    Hi all,

    Keen to know your thoughts.

    P&I or I/O for principle place of residence on a buy and hold strategy?

    Pros/cons?

    The simple reason to go P&I is a rate difference of 0.25%. Unless you believe you can make more money elsewhere paying of your own home should be a number one. Similarly if you are looking to invest i.e. buy another property an I/O reduces how much you can borrow for the next loan. A P&I loan both OO or INV gets you the cheapest and maximum lending.
