The reason why hiring managers want to see a home address on a resume is that they want to know how far away you are from the office. If you are too far, then employers become worried. They do not want to risk hiring someone who will become tired of the commute within a few months because then the company needs to start the hiring process all over again.
Jobseekers who worry their distance will automatically disqualify them may be able to get away with simply putting the city and state they live in. They can provide a more precise address during the interview process. Additionally, you can say how you are open to relocation in the cover letter if you know for a fact you would need to move to have this job.

On a resume, use your name as your header, then underneath it, list your city, state, email address, phone number and LinkedIn URL. It can be helpful to an employer to have all details of your physical address so they can establish an applicant profile for you, or use it to determine if you would need to relocate. But more and more employers understand the growing online security problems that full addresses on resumes create, and more and more are fine with just having your city and state listed.
In fact, some employers who use applicant tracking systems (ATS) to screen candidates would prefer not to have physical addresses so that they don't accidentally violate your privacy by revealing personal information. Eventually, an employer may request an address to do a background check or to offer you a job – at that time, you will need to supply a full address.
