No, photoshop is a retouching software.
Lightroom is an editing software, they compliment each other, and don't replace one another.

He is giving you sound advice, might as well listen.

And photoshop is just another editing software that does not require
tutorials, bc you know, you are just copying here placing there,
changing a pixel or two....thanks for the very helpful insight. I really,
did not know lightroom was for that.
You said you need a specific tutorial about retouching "white modern homes". I doubt there is any, but you can easy find a tutorial "how to clean background" for example. Doesn't matter what color, it will be the same tutorial.

You've got a lot of interesting answers and opinions but I don't see anyone asking you what you mean by retouch (so, answers based on some speculation). Exactly what are you hoping to accomplish? Saying one needs to retouch an image is akin to someone saying they need to cook food; there's a huge range of options and needs here, LR may very well be fine for what you hope to accomplish.

Case in point. You have a home and you need to remove telephone wires and replace the sky. You could in theory do the wires but it would be a boatload of work! Forget about replacing the sky. You need a pixel editor like Photoshop for that. But if your goal is fixing what appears to be clipped highlights and that data does exist in the raw, sending the clipped, rendered TIFF into Photoshop to 'fix this' would be really dumb! So we have different tools for differing jobs and the old saying, use the right tool for the right job applies. What specifically is the 'retouch' job(s) required for these images of homes? With more data, we (I'll) try to assist. Without data, we're just posters with opinions.
