While Perth is expected to see an increase in fly-in, fly-out (FIFO) tenants as the WA resources sector picks up over the next year or so, Fremantle too is getting its fair share of interest from the FIFO crowd.

“We have recently received a lot of applications for rental properties from eastern states and ‘fly-in, fly-out’ tenants, and this usually translates to a corresponding increase in home sales,” says Raine & Horne Fremantle principal John O’Neil.

“However, we will need to wait until the FIFO’s start earning money from their work in the resources sector before this happens.”

In terms of where’s hot in Fremantle at the moment, O’Neil points to Hilton as one suburb that’s performing especially well given the current subdued market conditions thanks to its level of affordability.

“Homebuyers have been chasing homes in Hilton, on the outskirts of Fremantle, where you can buy three-bedroom homes in the low $400,000s,” he says.
