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">
	<label>Property Type<span style="color:#F50">*</span><br />
	<select class="input2" name="property_type" id="ptfr">
	<option value="Condo / Townhome">Condo / Townhome</option>
	<option value="Single Family">Single Family</option>
	<option value="Mobile Home">Mobile Home</option>
	</select></label>
	</span>

	<span id="For+Sale">
	<label>Property Type<span style="color:#F50">*</span><br />
	<select class="input2" name="property_type" id="ptfs">
	<option value="Condo / Townhome">Condo / Townhome</option>
	<option value="Single Family">Single Family</option>
	<option value="Multi Family">Multi Family</option>
	<option value="Mobile Home">Mobile Home</option>
	<option value="Land">Land</option>
	</select></label>
	</span>
	</span>

	<span id="formDiv">
	<span id="propForm">

	</span>

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

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();
		
		
	});
