How to Buy

Kirkwood Homes understands that buying a new home is not something that most people do regularly and we also understand that the home buying process can be confusing.

That is why Kirkwood Homes has designed an extensive range of practical incentives that are designed to take the complexity out of moving and are designed to try and assist every purchaser, from the first-time buyer to the down-sizer, move up to a Kirkwood home.  

Incentives are plot specific and not all incentives are available on all developments.  Please ask our Sales Consultants for more information regarding plot and development specific incentives.

Flooring AllowanceMore

Kirkwood can help you with the expense of furnishing your new home by giving you an allowance toward your floor coverings. Plot-specific – your sales adviser can put together a package relevant to you.
