What Our Customers Have to Say

Mark and his team at UpMarket were fantastic from start to finish. We thoroughly tested the market as our house re-build was always going to be difficult. But, UpMarket didn't see issues, only creative challenges and opportunities to invent and create.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Upmarket Homes different from other Canberra home builders?

At Upmarket Homes, we believe that every home should be as individual as you are. In our 30+ years of experience in custom home construction across Canberra, we have taken a holistic approach to your budget and listen to your needs. In such turbulent times, you can take comfort from a builder who has seen all aspects of a volatile building industry.

You can get started by contacting Upmarket Homes for an obligation free appointment to discuss your project.

If you already have a plan, our experienced team can help refine your design and pricing, ensuring you’re getting the right home and that it can be built within your budget.

If you’re looking for a custom home design, our expert team will create a concept design that gives you a floor plan and a price estimate.

Of course, it’s your new custom home. We recognise that you’re not a building expert so you’re not going to have all the information you need at the beginning of your project. We’ll work with you and give you the opportunity to ask questions and make changes to your plan, right up until the completion of the working drawings.

At Upmarket Homes, we understand that every project is unique. As part of our home design process, our designer works alongside our estimators to design a home that will suit your budget. We can also assess plans that you provide to us and make suggestions on how to save you money.

After talking with you about your budget and needs, we can suggest features for your custom home design. To ensure you’re making the right choice, we perform a comprehensive site visit to assess the benefits of your site and incorporate the best aspects of your land with your needs and preferred design.

At Upmarket Homes, we guarantee our tradesmanship and all government assurances, statutory warranties and homeowners’ warranties apply to our work.

Prior to handing over the keys, we will compile a completion list with you for the completion of your property. At handover, an Upmarket Homes representative will complete a walkthrough of your home with you. We then review the completion list and sign off on it. Within the 90-day maintenance period, we also complete a follow-up walkthrough and compile a maintenance list, ensuring that you love your new home.

Absolutely. Upmarket Homes is a one stop shop that handles the entire process to deliver your Upmarket home on budget and on time.
