That option is not available in our MLS system, however every system is different in each Realtor Association. You may want to email a local Realtor to check on the specifics of your Multiple Listing Service... more
If you mean on the MLS, that's up to the rules on your local MLS. But the answer's probably "no." You can do a "sale" and a "rental"--and have two listings that way, but not two "sales."
Suggestion: If you're willing to continue renting, list one under "sale" with the comment that seller will be willing to consider owner-financing or a lease-option. But another under "rentals" with a similar notation--that the owner would be willing to consider a lease-option or lease-purchase. Check with your agent to see whether such an approach would be permitted.
I'm new to Trulia and almost 99% a Buyer's Agent but I don't think any listing service allows one to select two categories. But I happen to have two clients who are looking specifically for rental property right now and so I appreciate your conundrum.
I think your agent is right that more folks are looking for second homes rather than pure rental plays. But my two clients are the exception to that rule, and the local MLS does not have a category for Rental Cabin.
So, my, less than perfect suggestion, is make it Residential in the MLS and Income/Investment in Trulia and Zillow (for a month at least) and see what happens..
