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.

Higher growth rates occurred in the West, namely in California, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, and Washington.Moreover, CoreLogic reported, home price values are expected to be another 4.3 percent higher this coming December than they were at the end of 2017. CoreLogic expects monthly values this year to be about half a percent higher than their corresponding 2017 months were.Part of the reason home values are on such an upswing is the lingering shortage of houses available on the market, and part is a still-robust economy.“The number of homes for sale has remained very low,” said Dr. Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist for CoreLogic. “Job growth lowered the unemployment rate to 4.1 percent by year’s end, the lowest level in 17 years. Rising income and consumer confidence has increased the number of prospective homebuyers. The net result of rising demand and limited for-sale inventory is a continued appreciation in home prices.”Frank Martell, President and CEO of CoreLogic, credited the price growth to “aggressive monetary policy, the economic and jobs recovery, and a lack of housing stock.”This, Martell said, is making it tough for less affluent buyers to find homes to invest in.“As home prices and the cost of originating loans rise, affordability continues to erode, making it more challenging for both first-time buyers and moderate-income families to buy. At this point, we estimate that more than one-third of the 100 largest metropolitan areas are overvalued.”According to CoreLogic, 35 percent of the top 100 metropolitan areas had an overvalued housing market as of December. Almost half the top 50 markets were overvalued. Conversely, 28 percent of the top 100 metros and 14 percent of the top 50 metros were undervalued. Thirty-seven percent were where they should be.
