Absolutely yes, try substituting the equivalent code in your source with this one:


$(document).ready(function() {
		$("#lt").change(function() {
	      $("#boxes2>span").hide();
	      $("span[id*='" + $(this).val() + "']").show();
	      if ($(this).val() == "For+Rent") {
	      	$("#propForm").show();
			} else {
			   if ($("#ptfs").val() == "Land") {
			     $("#propForm").hide();
				}
			}
		});

		$("#ptfs").change(function(){
		   if ($(this).val() == "Land") {
		      $("#propForm").hide();
			} else {
			 	$("#propForm").show();
			}
		});
		
		$("span[id*='For+Rent']").hide();
		
		
	});

$("#pt").change(function() {
if( $(this).attr("selectedIndex") != 0 ) 
    $("#propForm").hide();
else
    $("#propForm").show();
});

A full working solution cleaned up.

Remember that SPAN is not a block element, you should use DIV instead.
<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>
<script>
	$(document).ready(function() {
		$("#lt").change(function() {
	      $("#boxes2>span").hide();
	      $("span[id*='" + $(this).val() + "']").show();
		});

		$("#ptfs").change(function(){
		   if ($(this).val() == "Land") {
		      $("#propForm").hide();
			} else {
			 	$("#propForm").show();
			}
		});
		
		$("span[id*='For+Rent']").hide();
		
		
	});
	
</script>
</head>
<body>
	<select class="input2" name="listing_type" id="lt">
	<option value="For+Sale">For Sale</option>
	<option value="For+Rent">For Rent</option>
	</select></label><br /><br />

	<span id="boxes2">
	<span id="For+Rent">

	<option value="Single Family">Single Family</option>

	</select></label>

	<span id="For+Sale">
	<label>Property Type<span style="color:#F50">*</span><br />

bugada,

That does work like i wanted, the only issue I see is that if you go to for sale > land, then change to for rent it still hides the fields, is there any way around that?

Thank you
