3 ways getting a puppy is like buying your next home
Assuming your new puppy is going to act, learn, and be like your current dog is crazy. My last dog was calm, docile, and timid. My new puppy jumps off the patio into the flower pots, does a commando roll then flies across the grass in a matter of seconds. Assuming the sale of your current home will proceed in the same way the sale of your last home did falls along these same lines.
Your last home sold in two days with five offers, each of which was a larger amount over your asking price. This sale will most likely be very different. Sales cycles differ. Market conditions differ. The process, documentation, and approach will have changed.
