If you are rural enough...

Not rural at all. This is a home in one of the nicest parts of San Diego, just a few miles from downtown. There have been some sales in our neighborhood recently but our house is small and the recent sales have been bigger homes.

Seems to me that a reasonable appraisal can be made by starting with the sale prices of the larger homes, estimating the cost of the land vs the cost of the structure, then applying the same (or similar) $/sq ft to any other nearby properties. Certainly not as good as the sale of a comparable property but it's reasonable.
