Reading through the descriptions of the different planes in the Manual of the Planes, I couldn't help but notice that these two goddesses were completely unmentioned. Kord, Moradin and Bahamut reside in Celestia, Pelor, Ioun and Erathis reside in Hestavar, and so on, but I could find no reference to Avandra or Melora.

Has there been any official word on where their "homes" are?

The Rules Compendium, page 41, states

Not all the gods live in astral dominions -...Avandra, Melora and Torog travel the world, and both Sehanine and Vecna wander the whole cosmos.

I cannot find any with a brief look through relevant books for Avandra. Since Avandra is the Goddess of Travel, it could be she does not have a realm, preferring to roam the planes.

According to Wikipedia, with no clear source:

Like Avandra, Melora has no astral dominion, preferring to wander the cosmos.
