Boston. Commercial real estate leasing was flat in some areas and noticeably improved in others.
New York. Commercial real estate leasing has picked up noticeably although vacancy rates continue to rise in some areas. Residential rents appear to have bottomed.

St. Louis. Commercial and industrial real estate activity remaina slow, but the suburban office vacancy rate increased in Little Rock; Louisville, KY; and Memphis. It was flat in St. Louis.
Minneapolis. Home construction is rebounding with building permits in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area doublinf year-over-year in May. Vacant commercial real estate increased in Minneapolis.
Kansas City, Mo. Home sales rose, but practitioners are less optimistic about upcoming months.
Dallas. Housing demand has improved, but bankers say many potential borrowers are being turned away because of poor credit.
