Maui Real Estate Q & A - What's a TMK number?

When talking about Maui real estate we refer to parcels by their identifying TAX MAP KEY number, or TMK.  This is the unique number that the County of Maui assigns to each parcel of land.  There is only 1 TMK for each piece of real property, even condos.  Sometimes the County is a little slow in assigning these numbers to a new subdivision, and you might encounter a TBD in an MLS report, meaning To Be Determined.  Be sure to ask your Maui Realtor about what this means if you're buying that property.

The TMK is a 6 part number that's broken down into: Island; zone; section; plat; parcel; and condominium.  For example, a condo at the Palms of Wailea Resort will have the following sequence..  2-2-1-008-082-xxxx.  Maui island is a 2.  Kihei/Wailea is zone 2, section 1.  

There are only 4 zones on Maui.  Hana and Kipahulu and Keanae are all part of zone 1. On the north shore you have zones 2 and 3, Haiku, Paia and Spreckeslville, Kahului and Wailuku.  South Maui is zone 2 or 3.  Maalaea is zone 3.  West Maui is zone 4.

Whatever property you're looking for, you can search the Maui MLS from the comfort of your own home with the property search feature.

This is excellent information for a prospective buyer and seller.

Georgina, I use to frequent several Maui websites and was surprised at how much information was provided to the consumer by selecting the TMK number. The County of Maui now has corrected this and now only gives owner name and address. Shucks...
