Default The most 'in demand' Underground station will shut soon

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/p...in-London.html

OK, this story is entirely based on data from estate agents, so it can't be
taken at face value, but it shows that the high prices in central London
have pushed property buyers further into the suburbs. That's not exactly
news, of course.

The story also contradicts itself, as it says:

“Based on our research the most in-demand area of London is currently East
London, home to the majority of the most in-demand stations, all of which
are positioned in Zones 5 and outwards. But Zones 3 and 4 are also enjoying
strong demand and big increases since January.

“With great transport links via the Jubilee and Central Lines as well as
the development of the Cross Rail project, strength of demand in these
areas should remain strong.”

The top ten most in-demand tube stops

1. Watford - Zone 7, Metropolitan Line
2. Eastcote - Zone 5, Metropolitan and Piccadilly Lines
3. Ickenham - Zone 6, Metropolitan and Piccadilly Lines
4. West Ruislip - Zone 6, Central Line
5. Ruislip - Zone 6, Metropolitan and Piccadilly Lines
6. Ruislip Manor - Zone 6, Metropolitan and Piccadilly Lines
7. Pinner - Zone 5, Metropolitan Line
8. Croxley - Zone 7, Metropolitan Line
9. Rayners lane - Zone 5, Metropolitan and Piccadilly Lines
10. Hornchurch - Zone 6, District Line

If the greatest demand is in East London, it's odd that the top nine
stations are in the north western suburbs.

Almost certainly a typo, and should have said "West London".

I don't find that odd that single *stations* with high demand are not in
the *area(s)* with high demand. The more so as large parts of East
London (depending on how that's defined) have rather few tube stations.
See https://www.emoov.co.uk/blog/2015/08...Tube-Hotspots/ for
more of how they score the lines


I do have some doubts about underlying data. eMoov.co.uk claim to have
sold 4,500 homes since 2010. That makes me question whether they have a
representaive sample of supply and demand across the whole of London.
