  • $\begingroup$ What other phase is present besides liquid in the reaction? Is there one? $\endgroup$ – airhuff Mar 13 '17 at 1:07

Yes, it would be considered homogeneous, since all of the components are in water. We don't write water as being aqueous because it would be somewhat redundant to say the water formed in water.
