Yusuf Boz who is founder and current CEO of PropertyTR.com says that “with the pandemic, most companies have moved to home office working model " .The time spent in the houses are longer now. This, in turn, caused the needs of the real estate sector to change. In our study, we found that with the prolongation of time spent in homes, demand shifted, especially between the ages of 0-4 properties and mostly detached housing.
