Opinion on best resorts if you have to rent out

What resorts have the best deals on handling a rental for you if you decide to neither stay nor exchange? By "best deal," I am thinking of three elements: 1. the probability that the unit will actually rent out and/or that you will receive money from the income pool; 2. the percentage take by the resort; 3. the relationship between income received to maintenance fee.

For Hyatt and Marriott, the probability of renting out seems pretty good, but from what I've seen each one takes 40 to 45% of the income, plus some additional costs. I have also seen some resorts mentioned at 20%.
