The 36-year-old arrived in Limerick in March 2015 and had, for a time, been living in a makeshift camp along the banks of the River Shannon.In the last three years, Vedran and his faithful companion have been homeless in France, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Slovenia, Italy and Bosnia and Herzegovina.Since arriving in Limerick, he claims that none of Limerick’s homeless shelters would accommodate his pet, which he refers to as a therapy dog to help him deal with his mental health issues. He told the Limerick Post that he has been attacked and had his tent burnt down during his time in the city, which lead to a breakdown and a period in hospital.“I was doing my best to keep myself healthy, mentally and physically. I feel I have been completely left behind by some public services, especially when I was dealing with the council’s homeless team,” Vedran said.“I am now emotionally exhausted and probably in need of another recovery period in hospital. I only managed to get a little bit of work since March, mostly because nobody would employ me with my current situation. I have had to borrow money from family and friends and I have been living for at least six months with less than €5 a day in my pocket.”Earlier this year, Vedran had his passport and other documents and valuables including a laptop stolen while travelling by train from Galway to Dublin. He now feels desperate, is in need of support, and does not know where to turn.“I am grateful for all the help I have received from people in Limerick but what I really need is to be treated fairly by public services such as the social welfare office,” he concluded.

Despite the rise however, the homeownership rate is 0.2 percent below the rate of 64.0 percent last year during the same period.In addition, the homeownership rate, while up from a 48-year low in the second quarter of 2015, is still below the peak of 69.2 percent in June 2004.After suffering a major drop in November 2015, existing-home sales rose 14.7 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.46 million in December, up from 4.46 million in November. Year-over-year, existing-home sales are up 7.7 percent, and December’s jump will mark the largest increase ever.According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the first-time buyers share was at 32 percent in December, up from 30 percent in November and 29 percent a year ago. For the year, first-time buyers made up 30 percent of homebuyers, up 1 percentage point from 2014 and 2013.”First-time buyers were for the most part held back once again in 2015 by rising rents and home prices, competition from vacation and investment buyers and supply shortages,” said Lawrence Yun, NAR Chief Economist. “While these headwinds show little signs of abating, the cumulative effect of strong job growth in recent years and young renters’ overwhelming interest to own a home should lead to a modest uptick in first-time buyer activity in 2016.”The Bureau found that homeownership was highest among those 65 years and older at 79.3 percent int he fourth quarter of 2015, down slightly 79.5 percent in the previous quarter. However, the only age group to increase their homeownership rate was the 35 to 44-year olds, from 58.8 percent in the fourth quarter of last year to 59.3 percent in the fourth quarter of 2015.”Jobs are being created at a rapid pace, and we expect earnings growth will finally start to rise this year.”Matthew Pointon, Capital Economics”Today’s Census Homeownership and Vacancy Survey release also provides optimism that the homeownership rate may have hit bottom in 2015,” said Ralph B. McLaughlin, Chief Economist at Trulia. “Many Gen Xers lost their homes during the recession, so this is a positive sign that we may be seeing boomerang buyers coming back into housing market. However, the increase was not statistically significant from a year ago.”Capital Economics Property Economist Matthew Pointon added, “That gradual rise in the homeownership rate should continue over the next few years. On the demand side, there are large numbers of young adults who are currently living with their parents. And many of them would like to form their own household. The financial crisis locked them out of homeownership, as they lost their jobs and/or banks refused to provide them with a mortgage. But both factors are now steadily improving. Jobs are being created at a rapid pace, and we expect earnings growth will finally start to rise this year. As well as allowing more households to access homeownership, that will also cut down on mortgage delinquencies and keep more families in their homes.”The Bureau reported that the homeownership rates were highest in the Midwest at 68.1 percent in the fourth quarter, and lowest in the West at 59.0 percent. All regions, except the West experienced a year-over-year decline in homeownership.Rental vacancy rates in the fourth quarter were 7.0 percent in the fourth quarter, unchanged from last year and down 0.3 percent from the previous quarter. The homeowner vacancy rate was 1.9 percent for the quarter, also unchanged from last year and last quarter.”An improving labor market and easing credit conditions are finally leading to a gradual rise in the homeownership rate. But the rental vacancy rate has yet to rise, and that will put upwards pressure on rents over the coming months,” Pointon stated.Click here to view the full report.center_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / The Great Debate: Has the Homeownership Rate Bottomed Out?
