New Real Estate Sales Lookup Application

The Property Tax Division of MRS has created a new online lookup service that allows the public to search for Maine real estate sales as reported on filed Real Estate Transfer Tax Declarations (RETTDs). The online RETTD Public Lookup Application allows users to review and download or print PDF versions of RETTDs going back as far as 2006. Documents can be searched by county, municipality, property type, book and page, selling price, and date sold. There are no fees to use this service.

The new application is available by viewing the Transfer Tax section of the Property Tax Division website and clicking on Public Real Estate Transfer Tax Lookup, or may be accessed directly using this link: If you have any questions, please contact the Property Tax Division at (207) 624-5600.
