Justipedia explains Private Property

A person’s home is probably the most well-recognized piece of real property. A person is solely responsible for their home. A person has the legal right to keep anyone out of their home and off of the property that their home resides on as they wish. A commercial building is also a well-recognized piece of real property. However, the commercial building owner has more laws to follow concerning who they can and cannot keep off their property.
