How to sell your own home

Selling a home sets ahead a whole lot of queries. To me home is not just a storey of stones but has feelings and good memories attached to it which I would never like to price for. But there may be many reasons and situations for which one may be compelled to sell off his home. One might be in want of money in his bad days. He might want to upgrade to a better home, the previous not having a sufficient accommodation. He might have to fix a mistake of his wrong selection of the house.  He might be transferred to a new place for the job which makes an urgent call for him to move. One might sell his own home to shift to a place closer to his loved ones or might shift because of annoying neighbours. There might be many reasons for a man to downsize his home deferred maintenance, kids grown up, personal relations or any health related problems. Everybody has their own reason to sell their home but I think I must have a perfect plan before venturing into the process so that they can get the right amount their home deserves.
