After a number of family vactions we have determined that we will likely be returning to the Myrtle Beach/Gardenside/Surfside area for the forseeable future. I have spoken to a few real estate agents concerning purchasing beachfront property (condo or beachhouse) for personal use 2 - 4 weeks a year and renting the rest of the time and they have all indicated that such an arrangement will not be cash flow neutral/positive due to fees, out-of-state taxes and the rising appreciation of the property in the Myrtle Beach area.

Does anyone have a different view? Am I just dealing the wrong agents?

Thank you.
