With its stunning sunsets, laid back lifestyle and vibrant restaurant scene, few could deny that Fremantle is a popular place to live.

Most buyers would also agree that this popularity comes with a price tag.

However, the recent weakness in the Perth market has meant house prices have consolidated to a more realistic level, albeit still high at $792,500.
