Why do some homes sell and some sit on the market?

I have a listing in La Palma, with Team Prather. This house is typical of La Palma - beautiful. The owners have kept the house up, it is clean, many upgrades, nice floorplan, pool, etc. It has been on the market for a couple months, now. It was also active on the MLS on 3 occasions during this period.

The initial listing had a lot of interest from agents. We had a buyer within days. But it fell out of escrow for some reason. Then it went active, again. We had more interest. Then we had another buyer and the home went into escrow. This time, they had an inspection done, and the inspector scared them (so we think - we only know what happened during the inspection). The buyer pulled out.

Back to active - this home went back to active status on the MLS. Yes we have two more offers. These days, in a highly desirable neighborhood, homes should sell quickly if they are priced right. This home was priced very well. In fact, since we decided to lower the asking price, it is one of the lowest priced homes for sale in the city. It has a beautiful landscape and curb appeal (see picture), it has a great floor plan with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths (one leads out to the pool in the backyard), a finished garage with storage above, high ceilings, and it's near good schools, shopping, and a hospital is less than 1/2 mile away.

Why do some homes sell quickly and others don't? If the price is high, that could be a reason. This home is not priced too high. If the home is not in a good neighborhood, price may not be the issue but location may be. This home is is a great neighborhood. So what is the issue? I don't know.
