Indiana Real Estate Law, governed by the Indiana Real Estate Commission (IREC), requires that all listing agents or representatives of a listing agent MUST attend all closings.
The additional fee charged to list your property in Indiana is used to cover the expenses we will incur to send someone to a closing.
