If you have ever looked at Big Island property, you were probably confused about the address numbering system here. There is almost always two numbers, a hyphen, then 3-5 more numbers. You pretty quickly figure out that the numbers after the hyphen are enough to locate the house once you find the street. So what are those numbers before the hyphen, many people wonder. Once they find out it is usually an 'Ah Ha' moment!
Take a look at the map below. You will notice that Hawaii Island is divided into 9 zones. Each of those zones is then divided into 9 sections. These two numbers - Zone and Section - are the numbers before the hyphen of every address! So one look at any Big Island address and you know what part of the island it is located! Ah Ha you say! Well me too!
As an active Big Island Realtor, understanding this address identification system is a very useful tool for me. If you are looking for property here it could be for you too. For example, say you are looking for property in Kona but you really want to be right in the thick of it - the Village. You can search for Kona but it will give you the entire area. Instead of clicking on every listing to see exactly where it is, just look for addresses that start with 75-. Pretty handy tool, thanks to our county planners in the 1930's!
