Thanks to you all. Our MLS does have check boxes for Bank Owned and for Short Sale, BUT if the property has a court date and auction date assigned there is no way to know it from the listing unless the sellers agent tells us, and sometimes we don't speak with them but to a duty agent that might not know.

Long term rental is a rental for a year as opposed to a week.
