A London Underground map that charts house prices across each of the 280 tube stops has revealed the gaps in prices between stations just a few minutes away from one another.
The average property in Finchley Road on the Metropolitan and Jubilee line costs £1.4 million.
Eight minutes further down the line at Wembley Park, the average property costs £404,000.
Those eight minutes on the tube can save buyers £1 million on property or more.
Meanwhile one stop on the Northern line can mean the difference between paying an average of £1.4 million to live in Hampstead in Zone 2 and £962,000 to live in Golders Green in Zone 3, a saving of nearly half a million.
In South London, one stop on the district line between Turnham Green and Acton Town can save buyers £400,000.
Emoov.co.uk, an online estate agent, put together the map to show which locations on the London Underground offer the best value for buyers.
The data was sourced from average local property prices listed on Zoopla in February 2016.
They discovered that Zone 2 is 37 per cent cheaper than Zone 1 on average.
The most affordable stops in Zone 2 are some of those that used to be classed as Zone 3. Prospective buyers pay an average of £313,000 in West Ham, £324,000 in Canning Town and £340,000 in Stratford.
