I would highly advise against this, namely because you’re exposing yourself the risk of the tunnel going down and exit traffic possibly going out the default route, which is your home ISP connection, or a misconfiguration occurring, which would mean your home is detected as a Tor exit, or so forth. If you want to run a relay at home, run an entry or middle. If you want an exit, get a VM, a Colo, or a Dedicated Server. Just my $0.02.
