Is there any online site where I can get a free quick appraisal of raw land?

I'm trying to get an informal assessment of raw land in the Palm Springs area of Southern California.

It is much harder to do AVM's of empty land as it is highly dependent on the Zoning, the grading, the utilities at the site, whether conditional use permits or other are required for a potential intended use, and whether there is any demand for new construction in that area or not.

If one is assuming it is zoned residential and that similar properties are surrounding it, the simplest method I know of to get a quick estimate is to find similar properties in the immediate neighborhood with homes on it, and then to use homesand.net to separate out an estimate for the land as compared to the structure.  That site also lets you adjust the square footage, etc, for fine-tuning your potential estimate.

You will get substantially different answers for different reference properties you choose, thus you will likely want to get estimates using at least 5, throw out the top and bottom, and average the rest.

I am wondering if anyone knows of an online site like Zillow where I can get a quick informal assessment (appraisal) of raw land. Anyone out there know of such a site?

There is no such thing as "free appraisals" anywhere for any property.
