Semantics or sales pitch?

Whilst driving this afternoon I had the radio tuned to one of those hour long programs that are not much more than thinly disguised commercials. This one was for real estate. What got me about it is that they kept referring to houses as homes.

I've always thought the distinction was clear; one purchases a house and turns it into a home. Once it goes back on the market it ceases being a home until the next occupant takes over.
