More than any other word, “home” is the most common real estate-related term used in naming software products for the industry.

When it comes to naming a real estate software company, it turns out using the word “home” isn’t all that original. It also doesn’t guarantee success because, as Juliet Montague (that’s Shakespeare) reminded us, “What’s in a name?”

In the more than 500 columns written in this space, the word “home” is used in more software product marketing than any other, including “house” and “agent.”

Here’s the rundown:
