As long as you're adding reps and weight on the bar over time (progressive overload) it shouldn't be an issue to train at home especially if you're starting out. Assuming you're training for size/muscle sticking to a rep range of any where between 4-12 (compound exercises), 6-15 (isolation exercises) should be good.
Things could get tricky though once you need to workout with heavier weights especially for compound lifts (safety issues, damaging your home). You may also need more exercise variation as you become more advanced which you may not have access to the necessary equipment at home. That's where having a gym membership becomes almost mandatory.
But I worked out at home for my first 3 years of serious training which I was able to get about 90% of my current gains so it's doable.
If you currently don't work out at all you will notice gains from just about anything, especially if you get your diet in check simultaneously. It is very likely you will eventually need to make your way to a gym if you want to see continual advancement.
Basic rep range for size would be 6-10, I have always preferred 8 reps to be the best for building lean mass. If you are looking to get cut (but not big) 10-12 reps will be best. If you don't have any heavy weights at home and you are doing 8 reps with a weight that you could honestly do 20x then you may need to get something heavier, or get a gym membership sooner

I haven't used the heavy ones yet and what I eat is probable mi biggest issue cause like I have posted I have tried quite a lot of way of doing things and about the reps I was going for the pretty much high reps there are parts of me wich need more work than others and mi arms justo doesn't seem to respond to what I'm doing so It's like being stuck and not getting any strenght gains either so should I go low intead fellas
