To rent or deposit our weeks?

We stopped traveling during COVID, so we have banked enough points for 5 or 6 weeks at our resort club in Mexico (locations in PV, Cabo, Loreto, and Cancun).

Points for those 5 or 6 weeks will expire if we do not book something before November. We may not want to use all of the weeks ourselves.

Option 1: Deposit all 5 or 6 weeks in Interval and hope we can find places we would like visit in the next two years. We have not had much luck finding exchanges we wanted in the past, so I am a little reluctant to deposit all of our weeks with Interval because we don’t have the option of searching Interval first before making a deposit.

Option 2: Reserve all of the weeks through our home resort and then try to rent them. If so, where are we most likely to find a renter for a resort in Mexico?
VRBO or similar system? TUG Marketplace? Other?

Option 3: Some combination of using Interval for a couple of the weeks and renting the rest.

We can use our club points to reserve a 1-bedroom unit during the holidays or up to 2- or 3-bedroom units during the rest of the year.

If we want to deposit and/or to rent our resort in Mexico, what size unit and what time of year should we arrange? What size and time of year will maximize our trade power if deposited or what will be most likely to rent?

Any advice you can share regarding renting and/or depositing will be appreciated. Thank you.

Renting on Redweek will likely have the most chance of success. In Cancun, New Years week, Presidents week or a prime spring week in March. Price will also be a factor in your success
