I just put "ground floor 2 bedroom in up/down triplex" or "side-by-side duplex" whatever it is.  Give them an idea of what it is as clearly as possible to save yourself some time @Jerry McGinnis  I have found whether it is up/down or side by side to be important. Harder to live under or over someone.

When posting an add for a unit?  Advertise it as an apartment. That's what it is.  I market my units for my duplexes as 1-2 bedrooms apartments and post a picture of the property so they can see.  When talking to them, pitch it as they will have more privacy than a traditional big apartment building and I always hear that renting a 2-4 family they feel like they are renting a condo instead of an apartment.  Just my thoughts! Good luck!
