Salisbury Point is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Amesbury, Massachusetts.

Salisbury Point real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) single-family homes and apartment complexes/high-rise apartments. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the Salisbury Point neighborhood are relatively historic, built no later than 1939, and in some cases, quite a bit earlier. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

Salisbury Point has a 12.2% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 64.4% of American neighborhoods).

Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.
