What is a TMK?

by | Sep 23, 2022

In the State of Hawaii, the TMK (Tax Map Key) identifies the location of a property, whether vacant land, condo or home. It is found on the owner’s property tax bill, TMK Report http://www.hawaiipropertytax.com/search.html, and County Records. Let’s use TMK 3-7-4-005-090-0005 as an example. These numbers represent: Island-Zone-Section-Plat-Parcel-CPR (if there is a condo).

I always provide the TMK Big Island Map for all my buyer clients, specifically those who are considering moving to this paradise. It is totally normal for clients to find a property listed on Zillow, Realtor.com, and other sites, yet have no idea where it is located on the island. Because we have a total of nine districts, 4026 square miles of land mass, and eleven of the thirteen micro-climates, it is very important to identify which areas of the island meet my client’s criteria, then focus on those areas. By referring to the TMK Map, it is easy to see if a potential listing is in the right area for the client search.

What Clients Are Saying

“Jen was very proactive in all aspects of selling our property and found contractors to keep the property looking good throughout the listing period. She also provided advice throughout the process and was very helpful in getting the transaction done at a distance (we were on the mainland throughout the process). Her knowledge of the Hamakua Coast was very helpful in helping prospective buyers understand the regulatory and practical issues associated with shoreline properties.”
