Indicata, a business intelligence set that combines machine learning, artificial intelligence and big data, analyzes more than 450,000 used vehicle data daily by scanning the secondhand online vehicle market in Turkey.
While the sales data in the report are based on the advertisement data given by the institutions and organizations engaged in secondhand trade in the online market, it does not include data on individual vehicle advertisements. Institutions that trade secondhand on the online platform are withdrawing the advertisements of the vehicles they offer for two reasons. Firstly, they revise the prices of the vehicles in the advertisement according to the changing market conditions and publish the advertisement again. Indicata also monitors when these ads are re-published.
Secondly, the trading institution withdraws advertisements because it has sold it to a broker, and publishes an advertisement for a broker that will re-sell the vehicle. This second group of vehicle listings, that is, vehicles that are completely removed from the listing, are considered “sold.”
