If by growing area you mean that other properties near yours are selling, but yours has remained on the market, it could either be a matter of price, or there could be some physical characteristic of your property that makes it a harder sell. If you used 2 other Realtors previously and they were not able to sell the property, this could be the problem, unless the previous Realtors did not have much experience in selling your type of property. Think of this: On any given day at any given time, the only property that you have to offer someone is yours, I am assuming. If you hire a real estate agent that handles the type of property you are selling, and they also have many other properties listed, the chances are much greater that they will be able to lead a prospect to your property. The majority of the time, I have a buyer who contacts me about one particular property but ends up really needing another property that I have available. They may have seen the other property and not realized it could meet their needs. The perfect buyer could be out there and never realize that your property is the one they should buy.
