About the builder

Value Homes has been operating locally for 25 years. The award winning company was opened in 1992 by builder Ralf Dutton. He was born in Cairns, and gained his open building licence in 1986, followed by his Real Estate Agents Licence in 1992.

Dutton has an extensive range of experience in the building industry, starting as a Trainee Draftsman in 1969 for 6 years. From there he became a Contract Draftsman for a further 4 years before managing a local building company from 1980 until 1992 when he launched Value Homes.

25 years later, Value Homes is a successful building company, responsible for project homes all over Cairns and in further regions. A growing team of people hold various roles and responsibilities, all working together to make the dreams of people a reality.

Ralf Dutton has had an extensive range of experience that has helped to shape Value Homes as the company it is today. In 1976, he was living in post cyclone Tracy in damaged Darwin and working on the rebuilding efforts. He has represented the building industry at both a local state and national level, continuing to do so today.

About Us


We’re here to help build your home, so we ensure you have all the facts and figures you need to make the important decisions. We explain the building process in easy-to-understand terms and we’re with you every step of the way. Our staff are passionate about working with you to produce the home you desire and we pride ourselves on our flexibility. You will have one point of contact throughout the build–someone you can call at any time with questions about your home.


At Value Homes we can show you your home in 3D before you sign your contract. If you can’t find a design from our comprehensive range to suit your needs, we will create one with you. All our homes have been meticulously designed with liveability, practicality and our tropical environment in mind.


Not every builder meets the Value Homes standard. You’ll be amazed what some builders don’t consider standard inclusions for your new home. Our Home Builder Checklist helps you compare builders’ standard base inclusions and can save you up to $30,000* at no extra cost. And that’s before any government grants or existing Value Homes promotions! We include many features that others charge extra for. If you’re after the best value for money and don’t want to be paying extra for the items we consider standard, then you must consider Value Homes.


Although we may be one of the best value-for-money builders in Australia, we never lose sight of the importance of quality. The same highly skilled tradesmen that build our display homes will be on the tools building your home, so a quick look around a Value Homes display home will give you a feel for the high quality of our work.


Tiles, carpets, paint, bench tops, roofing, fixtures – some people love the fact that with Value Homes you get so much choice, others find it a little overwhelming. If this is the case, just give us a general idea of your likes and dislikes, and our colour consultant and designers with present you with a final package for your approval.
