Mt Vernon is the county seat of Jefferson county, this is one county over. At least it’s a little bigger that anything in Washington Co.
My family has property in Marion County, Salem is the seat, and it’s hard to find values here as well.
Washington Co. is to the east and Marion Co. is to the north-east.
Maybe try a Realtor (by phone) out of either city to help. They, as of yet, have been of little help to us.
Sorry can’t be of much help.
