Selling your home can be a very emotional decision because this is where many milestones in your life occurred. Perhaps it was your very first home, or the first home you bought with your significant other.

However, when you decide to put your home on the market, it's best to keep your feelings in check.

(Think: Diane Keaton on the beach in the movie “Something’s Gotta Give.”)
