Home, home, home. I have my music playing, loud as I want, I can get coffee/tea whenever I want, no buggy competitors watching over my shoulder and no pestering broker wanting updates (Oh wait that's me LOL) My water cooler conversations are with me, me and me.

Home office is more productive.

Why? That's where I've got all my stuff!

That is where I know where to find some of the stuff.

And home is where the cell phone dude/dudess, who thinks shouting makes the voice better heard or their relevance greater, does not exist.

Some people say there are too many distractions at home; others say there are too many distractions at the office.  Over many years and three companies, I've had an office both here and there.  For me,  it works best to have my office at home.

Home because I can get started working when I get up and don't need to spend an hour and a half getting ready and driving to work.  Fortunately there is no distraction at home.  Those with children or a spouse that doesn't understand our work ethic need to get to the office.

For me it's the mortgage office, and it depends on what I'm working on - If I'm writing or putting marketing together, I like sitting at home, out back under our banana trees....super peaceful & relaxing, and I can focus a lot.  If it involves using the computer a lot, or bouncing around between different softwares and finding info, I have a much better setup in the actual office with multiple monitors, a few computers, etc...just a better, more efficient layout for multitasking.

It differs for many, some do better at home.  So claim too many distractions at home.  It depends in my opinion on how serious one is about getting it done.  You can get it done anywhere if you have to.  A

I am always working from my home office.  I used to split my time between working from the office, and my home but keeping resources and files in one place is a much better arrangement.  However the exception is I tend to be more distracted at home with chores and projects.  It really depends on what environment suites you the best.
