Is it Illegal/Trespassing to Walk into an Open Home Garage?

If someone's garage door (the big ones for cars - not the small side door) is opened up, can you walk into it without permission of the homeowner?  I know a salesman can walk up to your front door obviously to knock.  But, what if the salesman walks into your garage (with open door) and tries to knock on the door in there connecting into your home?  

Is that legal?  If not, is it considered sort of unprofessional or lacking in courtesy to go that route?  What if they knock the front door first and no one answers and then go the garage route?  Thoughts?

    Trespassing.  ANY time you enter onto someone's property without permission, it is trespassing.

    It depends 100% on your purpose.  It is NOT illegal in my State.
