As a relatively new homeowner, I’ve spent some time thinking about the personal economics of renting vs. buying.  Yesterday, during one of our weekly pilgrimages to Home Depot or Lowes, we were in the market for a 20′ ladder, but not so much the $250 price tag.  I briefly considered alternative solutions, including renting.  Here’s a Monday 2-Minute-Mindmap capturing the mental scan at the time.  Lots of companies may be having a go at the rental business model, especially in a tough economy.
