Why choose Hunters Southampton

Unrivalled local knowledge

We’ve helped homeowners buy and let their properties since 2004. As a result, we know the type of buyer or tenant your property will appeal to as well as the selling points of the local area. It’s how we deliver an outstanding service time and time again.

Experts in lettings

We know the problems landlords face because our Director, Jonathan, has let his own properties since 2002. This gives us first-hand experience of a shifting market and means we’re always up-to-date on the latest legislation changes that could affect your investment.

We also know what makes a good tenant, so you only get the most interested and serious prospects viewing your property.

Appeal to a massive market

We advertise your property to a broad and engaged audience. We promote it on our website, Zoopla, OnTheMarket, PrimeLocation, Rightmove and social media too.

This means you’ll have exposure to buyers or tenants from all around the country.

All this culminates in a lot of interest which means we can get you the right price for your property.

Accompanied viewings

To make your property experience as stress-free as possible, we accompany prospective tenants or buyers on all viewings to save you the time and hassle.

You’ll receive feedback after each viewing so you can see what people thought of your property. Through the My Hunters portal, you can easily stay informed on the viewings we have lined up.

Only pay when we’re successful

We understand that it’s frustrating having to pay agent fees when your home has been on the market for months.

That’s why you only pay us when we’ve sold or let your property. That way, we’re proactive and driven to get you the best results for your property.

See what our customers say about Hunters Southampton team:

From the off and all the way through the sale of my house Hunters were personable, professional, experienced and very helpful. We did get a sale and I was grateful that they stuck with it and offered a great level of service and advice. When it came to the legal side they provided three conveyancing quotes; Hunters' in-house (but farmed out to an internet conveyancer) was the most competitive. I was skeptical about using them and that they may be recommended due to the kick-back to Hunters, but after a chat with Hunters I went with them and sure enough they were also excellent with my case. I can say Hunters Southampton were as good as their word on everything, a pleasure to use, earned their commission and I would certainly recommend them and use them again.

Mr S, Southampton

I found the service first class both in terms of letting my property and then the subsequent sale of it. Jonathan offered excellent advice and assistance initially in relation to a potential HMO and then letting the property and was ably assisted by Anam. James then became involved in the sale and handled the transaction swiftly and efficiently to completion. The fees paid throughout were very reasonable for the service provided.

Mr D, Southampton

We are delighted to tell you that putting an advertisement in your window has paid off and we have sold the house (the Compris de Vente has now been signed by all parties and returned to the notaire in France). Thank you for all your help. We have had more prospective buyers through Hunters in Southampton in twelve months than the three estate agents in France over the last few years. We are really impressed with Hunters and sing your praises to everyone!

Southampton is the perfect blend of city and coastal life. A stone’s throw from the New Forest and just down the road from the South Downs, there’s plenty of opportunities to enjoy the countryside.

Unsurprisingly, Southampton is known for its maritime history and past time with plenty of sailing clubs dotted along the Solent and coast.

There are museums dedicated to the sea and sky, with museums dedicated to aviation and the spitfire as well as the Titanic.

The student and HMO market is thriving. The University of Southampton is ranked in the global top 100 and is a member of the Russell Group, making it a desirable institution for students around the world. Other universities include Solent University which specialises in industry-focused degrees and the University of Southampton School of Medicine.

    Jonathan Clegg

    Director

    Jonathan is the owner and managing director of Hunters Southampton (formally JCL Homes). He has been an investor in the Southampton Market since 2002, particularly specialising in the HMO market renting individual rooms to young professionals. Jonathan originally set up in 2005 as J Clegg Lettings following many requests from friends and family to manage their properties. The company then evolved into JCL Homes, selling, renting and managing properties. In 2016, with a growing portfolio, Jonathan joined the Hunters family, utilising the years’ worth of expertise and experience behind Hunters much larger brand, whilst also keeping the independence that is vital to deliver exceptional service. "I have found that my experience in all areas of the property industry ideally positions me to offer advice and guide both new and experienced investors through the ever changing legislation surrounding property. We found this knowledge to be a real advantage to make sure our landlords obtained good yielding properties that are going to rent quickly, having minimal vacant periods (ideally none!)." Jonathan lives in Lymington with his wife and 2 children, not far from his family home. Growing in Lymington meant it was inevitable that a passion for sailing would manifest and he spent his childhood on the water, eventually leading to an Olympic 49er campaign. He is equally passionate about sailing and property, being happy to chat anytime about either – part of the reason for our increasing presence in Ocean Village over the last few years.

Local area guide

Southampton is a port city on the south coast of England. It’s a beautiful place with a great history, stunning scenery and plenty to do for people of all ages.

Being a large port city, Southampton has excellent road links to the rest of the country. The M27 is nearby and connects through to Portsmouth, and the M3 links Southampton to London. Southampton Central train station has direct services to London that takes 1 hour 20 minutes. The train station also links the city to Bristol, Brighton, Portsmouth and Oxford. If you’re using public transport, there are many buses, trains and cycle routes across Southampton. When travelling by air, Southampton International Airport is 6 minutes away from the city by train and flies to destinations around the UK and Europe.

Southampton has a great range of primary and secondary schools across the city. There are 79 state-run schools and several independent options, such as The Gregg School and two sixth form colleges. There are also two universities, the University of Southampton and Solent University, which brings many students to the city.

When heading out for some retail therapy, Westquay Shopping Centre has all the national high street brands, selling everything from technology and homeware to fashion and sports. However, Southampton has a fantastic independent shopping scene, with stores such as Beatnik Emporium (a vintage store), Vinilo Record Store and award-winning chocolate shop and cafe, Frederick’s Chocolates. There are also plenty of markets held in the city centre, including farmers markets and vintage markets.

With Southampton’s extensive range of restaurants and bars, you’re spoiled for choice when heading out for the evening. Try Argento for South American steaks or Franco Manca for Neapolitan pizzas. There’s also a strong pub scene both in and around the city. When craving a traditional ale or two, try a pub like The Butcher’s Hook, or for live music and comedy, The Talking Heads.

Southampton General Hospital is in the city centre and has an A&E department. There are also plenty of GP surgeries too.

Southampton has a long and rich history, with the museums to match. If you love aviation, take a look at the Solent Sky Museum (which used to be known as Southampton Hall of Aviation). It boasts an impressive selection of planes and marks the history of aviation in the area, which is interesting because Southampton is where the first Spitfires took off. If you prefer maritime history, then Southampton’s SeaCity Museum is for you. Alongside the impressive Titanic displays, there are interactive features, games and a picturesque cafe.
