Seal-coating Roads and Driveways

I live in a new townhouse community in Myrtle Beach, SC, where we have 256 units and the roads were paved about 18 months ago. My question is, do we need to seal coat the roads and driveways now, as the pavers who do this work say we should? The cost is over $20,000.

When I lived in New Jersey, the company that repaved my 20-year-old blacktop driveway said not to seal coat (and reminded me that public road crews don't even do this to shared city streets) and I wonder whether the local company is just trying to guarantee a job for themselves.
