Is Home owner or homeowner the correct spelling

Interesting. “Home Owner” or should it be “Homeowner”? I always thought it was homeowner. I never stopped to think of it as being two words. Sure it is made up of two words. You have “Home” and you have “Owner” and you usually just see hanging out together in sentences.

The question comes in as: Does it really matter?

I see the answer.com says it doesn’t but now¬†a days its usually written as one.
